Yes, that's not new, you always need to set the proctime for looping to work.

That seems to be a bug... I suppose when it hits EOF the engine places itself in "finished" state, overriding the proctime variable and therefore the looping.

Two ways you could overcome this problem until the bug is squashed:
- Specify a proctime one ms shorter than your file length; so if your file is
0.6 sec long you could say "cs-set-length 0.599" I don't think a ms is
enough to make a difference to your ear but it will do the trick for
BTW; even though cs-set-length only reports two digits after the period when
you set it it really takes in account the other digits as well...
- Use EWF for looping: the bug you found doesn't exist with EWF files, so
you could just create an EWF looking like this:
source = test.wav
offset = 0
start-position = 0
length = 0.6
looping = true
Hope this helps,
