I attempted to upgrade to 5.4 last night and didn't make it. Actually I first tried to use the 11/23 nightly because I wanted to try out the new screensaver behaviors. I loaded it up and it started fine. But it reported only 330 songs out of my collection of ~6K. So I hit rescan and the server just went away. Restarted, same behavior. I figured that it was something with the nightly, so I grabbed the official 5.4 release and tried that. But it behaved exactly the same way. It reported 330 songs by one artist, all lumped under "unknown album," and it died when I did a rescan.

I didn't have time to debug this last night, so I rolled back to 5.3.1, which is working fine. I plan to have another go at 5.4 this long weekend...any thoughts about what to look out for here?

Setup is Windows XP SP1 (no firewall enabled!) with iTunes. Slimserver runs as a service.
