Windows XP, music on local hard-drive, iTunes scan only.

I think the iTunes scan is the common link - I believe you're using it?
Problems seem to happen when readTags() is called on a track scanned
from iTunes
- but I can see no pattern in what tracks are affected!

No common thread on the systems then.
I tried running with both use itunes enabled and disabled pointing the
server to the itunes music folder.
With itunes enabled finding 'bad' albums was very quick, but I thought
I had solved it by disabling use itunes and doing a wipe/rescan, it
just took a bit longer to find the 'bad' albums. So it could be
something to do with itunes integration, I don't know.
Went back to 5.4 yesterday and everything was fine, just like yourself.

Are either of you running Windows XP SP2?

The logic for track validity has changed in 6.0 - as well as the entire
subsystem that handles file paths to deal with Unicode. Still a few kinks to work out.

No I'm on a mac Dan.

It feels though that it could be the check for the tracks validity
could be the problem, but I'm only guessing.
