Hmm, is that true?  I haven't verified it for myself yet...

Package: gnupod-tools
Version: 0.98-2
Severity: normal

I uploaded a bunch of mp3 files to my iPod using gnupod_addsong.  It was
very straightforward, but after I did it, many of the songs wouldn't play. 
After some investigation, I noticed a pattern: songs with particularly long
names didn't seem to work.

I experimented with a few things and found to my surprise that changing id3
tags or iPod attributes for the files didn't help - they still didn't play. 
However, simply *renaming* the files and re-uploading them did work. 
Specifically, I have a file called:

        [01] York - The Reachers of Civilisation.mp3

Uploading it to my iPod with gnupod_addsong worked, but the song refused to
play.  However, if I do this:

        cp "*York*.mp3" york.mp3
        gnupod_addsong york.mp3

The song imports and plays just fine.

Are we overflowing a buffer or miswriting some binary data somewhere?
