Auto-Tagger/Replay Gain Analyzer Deleting Media Files!

Sending albums (by right clicking on a playlist) to the auto-tagger or the replay gain analyzer randomly results in media files in that album being deleted from the HDD (not the playlist). Out of 63 albums, I had approximately 10-15 tracks deleted from my HDD. By chance, I caught the problem right away, restored the files from a backup, and ran the auto-tagger again (with the same results, only a different set of files had been deleted from the HDD). I discovered that the same issue occurred when sending albums to the replay gain analyzer.

I've run a standard suite of tests on my machine to check the integrity of my CPU, RAM, HDD's, etc and everything appears to be in good working order.
