Local files still hijack the lockscreen

This has been a bug for an insanely long time, and I can't believe that it's still a problem:


  • Play a local file on your iOS client.
  • Pause the track.
  • Lock the screen.
  • Marvel at how song information is still displayed on the lockscreen, with the playback marker all the way on the right, the time remaining in the track displaying as 0:00
  • Feel your phone heat up and watch that battery drain.

This has been an issue for as long as Spotify has been on iOS, and it hasn't been addressed in 2.0. How hasn't this been fixed yet? Can the client not fully or correctly pause a local file synced to your phone?
