I tried the setting change thing, but could never get the pausing to stop. I don't think it is BT in my case. I moved over to Podcast Addict for a short time, but the playlist feature really stinks so I switched back to BP. I ended up turning off automatic updates and then downgrading to previous versions until I got to a version that worked well. I ended up at v4.2.37 and have not had any more pausing problems. BP previous versions are located here: www.beyondpod.mobi/Android/BETA/betachanges.htm. The only down side is I have to check Play store and update manually.
