Artists with a special characters in their name are listed twice in your Slimserver database?

Some offenders are:

Joo Gilberto
8 Weeks
Niels-Henning rsted Pedersen

Other than converting the special characters to regular ones, is there a tidy way to handle?

Are the "special" characters in the filenames or only the tags? Some other basic info would help, such as your OS, SBS version, whether your music library is on a separate drive, etc.

I have lots of artists with "special" characters and don't have the duplication problem you mention. Is it possible you have subtle differences in the tag entries for different tracks or albums?
