Default [Q] Audio player becomes possessed and scrolls through songs

Hi,

I have an issue that started happening a few weeks ago. I would be using Google Music and listening to a CD (stored locally on my device), and then then the songs would start randomly changing...sometimes it would happen every few seconds...sometimes several times within a second..(as if someone had control of my device). When I go to stop google music (by hitting the X), it would start back up and start playing. [It will NOT jump outside of the playlist/cd selected....and it won't always skip in order....]

I rooted my phone a month or two had have been running EclipticOne6 [Keeping up with the latest releases]...with no issues until a few weeks ago [I thought it might have initially been related to constantly switching skin packs...]
I then went and tried wiping my device [Factory Reset...and even Advanced Wipe (everything including Internal storage)].and doing a fresh full install of 4.4...but that didn't fix it.
Last weekend i wiped it again and a completely new rom [Santod040's stock rom (updated 6/11/14)] and was fine for a few days, then it started reappearing. I've not installed any new programs....it's not constant.....but it's SUPER annoying.

Everything else works just fine on the phone.

Few things I've tried/Notes:
Doesn't happen all the time (sometimes it'll be fine for an hour....sometimes it'll happen almost immediately)
Rebooting/clearing cache doesn't appear to have an effect (no worse/no better)
I even tried another music app (AIMP)...and it did the same thing [In case this was related to some google service]
I've tried disabling any other running programs [Using Greenify and SDMaid]
It doesn't appear to be tied to a "timed" event....ie...doesn't happen every "5" minutes [Like a program wakes up and trips it]
I do use TIBU to restore apps/data (have been using this for years)
Lately, I've been Google restore my apps/settings when setting up the phone with each rom update
Once right after this happened I opened up MX Player (for video)....and the same thing happened....
I'm not new to rooting/unlocking/roms [been beating the heck out of many devices over the years ]
I've done a bunch of searches but can't seem to get a hit related to this
This will happen if I'm holding my phone still (so I don't think this is related to touching the volume button or activating something in my pocket.).....??

Anyone have thoughts / things to try? My next attempt might be to do a factory reset, and wipe everything and start from scratch...but that's a bit drastic. Or worse yet....return it to Verizon and have them give me a new phone (unrooted/locked)....

Thanks in advance,
Rez

Try the decrypted RUU in development section. It could be a bad partition screwing things up and an ruu is the only fix for that.

I had the exact same issue before. And it only happens when I have headphones in. I think its a ROM issue. I havent had it happen in a while though. Im using Nusense
