XP Pro, 6.5b3, default skin.

If I list albums all OK, then from the resulting dropdown I select I select Artists,Album I would expect to get Artists listed in alphabetical order on the left with their albums on the right.
Instead I get albums on the left and srtists in alphabetical order on the right. These are (randomly) interspersed with Various Artists albums.
This may be a registered bug, but I can't find it.

My understanding of the dropdown is that it is only for the sort order, not for the display of each entry. And indeed, that's what you're getting, except for the Various Artists issue, which I think is a registered bug (but I'd have to check).

You might be able change the listing Artist - Album by changing the display options under Player Settings.

No thanks to my still-feeble bugzilla search skills. Truth be told, I cut & pasted those links from a post by kdf in the Beta forum.
