Space added to Artist name causing Issues

First, I am using the lastest version of Winamp (5.621)

I have an annoying problem. If anyone could lend some insight as to the solution, that would be great.

For some reason after I sync my phone, it wants to re-sync a group of songs as it "thinks" the files contain different information. However, they are the same. For some reason, on certain songs, Winamp decides to add a space after the artist's name but before the dash making Winamp believe that the files are different.


Songs to be transferred Songs not in local library

Santana - Into the Night Santana -Into the night
Extra space

If you look on the right, winamp decides to add an extra space for no reason. I tried adding the space in winamp to see if I could fool it, but that does not seem to work.

I have tried removing the MP3 tag entirely and re-inputting in the information with mp3tag and winamp. Unfortunately, this does not seem to work and I don't know why.

If anyone could help, I'd really appreciate it

sounds like a bug...

might also be related to the fact that for some unknown reason they don't strip leading and trailing spaces when scanning:

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