yeah, I'm pretty sure I mentioned it way way back when I reported the other race condition bugs which did get fixed, as I've been aware of it for a long time; I just happened to come across it again now and figured it might be good time to raise it again.

I have not tested it to see if it only affects files with missing artist tags, but that seems like its probably true. it would also be interesting to see if its true when there is an albumartist tag but no artist tag, or an album tag with no other tags, etc.

my suggestion would be to use the filename for at least 3 fields: artist, album, and title. yes, its a heavy kludge, but its one that I think is called for, and better to have the field display something than nothing (and produce such strange behavior). I think wav users would appreciate it.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing
