The latest nightlies have been having an odd problem wherein if the artist and composer names are the same, SlimServer lists them over and over and over...

For example:

"Boy With A Problem from Imperial Bedroom by Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello & Elvis Costello"

"Miss Sarajevo from The Best Of 1990-2000 by U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2 & U2"

Hmmm, I've been considering adding COMPOSER tags to songs, especially in my Jazz collection. Without the bug (yeah, need to get that one fixed ;) is it intended that both the artist and the composer will be displayed like that, with no distinction between the two? Would "Tadd's Delight", composed by Tadd Dameron and performed by Miles Davis be displayed as:

Tadd's Delight by Miles Davis & Tadd Dameron

Is there no way to get something more meaningful, maybe like:

Tadd's Delight by Miles Davis, Tadd Dameron(c)

I just know I'm going have a ball tagging my classical stuff...

This has been fixed already. Please see my post in the beta forums, in
response to your question there. Please try not to double post.

Thanks.
