Mine resumes as well. Heck, mine resumes even after a master reset. After a reset I plug it back in and it launches indexing/BVC but picks up right where it left off. Never used to do that after a reset in w/2.11. It would always start right in with the first song alphabetically on my iPod.
I also have repeat set to off but if I tell it to play a song or an album, it will repeat either of those upon completion.
