I'm having a problem in SlimServer (6.2b1 - 3774 - Windows XP) with properly displaying artists who have an ampersand ("&") in their names. These artists are all appearing twice, once properly, and once with "%26" in place of the ampersand. Any suggestions?

I believe some elements of the iTunes parsing is not escaped properly, replacing
the %26 with &. Try disabling iTunes and doing a rescan with clear library
checked. That will at least confirm it.
