That's odd, I have the latest WMP10 on Win2kPro and I don't see that
behavior. WMP10 correctly and accurately accounts for all 2731 of my songs,
and all of the albums and their songs show up correctly even though the
"Album Artist" field is clearly NOT filled in, on any of them.

All I can say is, Huhn.
