Yes, GNUpod didn't write this flag, it always wrote 0x00 as it does
with all 'unknown' fields.

..i checked this and it looks like '0x00' means
'is *not* *not* part of a compilation' (= Enabled)


Well: Could you please try this version:

This version has support for the compilation-flag and sets it
to 0x01 (= Disabled) per default.

I tested it with a SmartPlaylist [1] on my iPod and it seems to
fix the issue.
(But still strange that 0x00 means enabled.. i have to check this
 on iTunes tomorrow..)

   <!-- I hate apple for stuff like this.. but ok: "" is eq 0x00 in this case..
