  Sounds like a good idea :)

  First of all remove the cache and rebuild it.  We'd need to start
 and see where the problem comes from:

        1.  Is it the case that the tag cache doesn't have the information
 saved into it?

        2.  If the information is actually in the cache then the bug
 is related to reading it from there.

  I guess working out where the error is coming from, ie. adding the
 file(s) vs reading the info.

  That's expected behaviour.  I'm sure I recall somebody else telling
 me things broke if I used spaces.

  Two cases here:
        1.  Either you have advanced_playlists=1 so the information is
 coming from the tag values.
        2.  The infomration is coming from the URI which is in the playlist
 in which case I'd say 'player bug'.

  I'm mostly been fixing these eventually.  They're usually harmless
 although without samples it's hard to say.

  There's not much OO involved, if that helps.
