Description Edward Grace 2005-10-06 06:56:58 EDT
Description of problem:

When importing directory of the form <Artist>/<Album>/<Tracks> it fails if the
artist has a - in the name for example AC-DC.

For example 'AC-DC/Back In Black' would become:

Artist: "AC"
Album: "DC : Back In Black"

Clearly something is going wrong with the parsing of the directory names...
The artist becomes AC, the Al

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Generate a directory structure of music where the artist has a hyphen in the name
2. Import this into the library

Expected results:

The artist should be "AC-DC", the album "Back In Black"

Note, this may be similar to bug #138265

Thank you for the bug report. However, Fedora Project no longer maintains this
version of the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug
if the problem persists.

The Fedora Legacy project ( maintains some older
releases, and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the
problem against Fedora Legacy component
