Default Oddities with Shuffle mode? (The Werezenwolf-Workaround)

I have owned my Zen 32gb for about 6 months now. At first I thought it was just my imagination, but...

Has anyone else noticed that shuffle mode tends to play the same songs more frequently? BUT -- if you reformat the player, you start getting a different set of songs?

Purely for my own curiosity, I formatted the Zen and created a playlist with 50 songs. I then played the first 10 songs of that playlist (well, forwarded through it) every day for a couple of weeks, and there were 19 songs which were ALWAYS played in the first 10 songs. I couldn't find any common thread among the songs.

Needless to say, shuffle isn't very shuffle if it keeps playing the same stuff and this is really starting to annoy me. Is this an undocumented feature, or is my Zen possessed?
