    Strange favorites behavior

    Having started playing with the presets and favorites
    ability with the Radio, I noticed something strange.

    I have run into two cases where the album title appears
    to get corrupted after a scan. Somewhere in the process of assigning
    an album to a favorite and/or preset (and using it), the
    title gets cleared in the DB (I assume).

    For example, I have an album called "Time Warp". The
    album name is unique (so bug 10259 doesn't apply),
    and I can find it normally in a search.

    After a while, I can no longer use search to find the
    album. When I list albums, "Time Warp" shows up first
    in the list by name (which it shouldn't, obviously).

    When I add the album as a favorite, I get a favorite
    added with a null title. Example:

    db:album.titlesearch=

    v.s. one that works:

    db:album.titlesearch=BUZZ%20BUZZ

    Clearing the DB and rescanning "fixes" the problem for that
    album.

    Yet, clicking on the album shows the correct album title
    in the web interface.

    Anyone else seen this? Is this a known bug? If I find
    a way to reproduce it, I will post more info.

    Seems like an issue with presets and albums

    Update, this is repeatable and appears to have nothing to do with favorites (only presets).

    After a clear and rescan, the albums title are fine.

    Then pressing a preset assigned to an album, it seems to zap the
    title in the SBS database as noted earlier.

    Note that I'm not sure if it is by pressing an already defined button,
    pressing and holding it, or repeating the process a few times. However
    when I do this, it seems to reliably zap the title after a while.

    This seems like a bug, so I've opened one:
