After installing 6.5, the library rescan was consistently failing with a scanner.exe crash. The event log didn't reveal much:

Faulting application , version 0.0.0.0, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x00000000.

I had recently ripped a Chemical Brothers mix CD that had some really long freedb filenames, like:

02 - Makin' a Living (Kenny Dope Presents the Powerhouse Three) + Hot Wheels (Badder Than Evil) + The Theme (Unique 3) + Gimme Some Love (Love Corporation).flac

The folder path of that file was:

Z:\Music\FLAC\The Chemical Brothers\Brother's Gonna Work It Out

I tried moving that out of the folder SS was scanning and that seemed to fix the problem. Now the rescan seems to finish successfully. While that is an overly long filename, if the OS can handle it, SS should, too.
