Public bug reported:
When I insert a CD, Rhythmbox typically tells me that it matches
multiple albums, usually with identical names. Whichever album I pick,
it shows correct-looking title, artist, and album names on the "Devices"
page for the CD. However, if I go to the "Recently Added" page after
the import completes, most -- and often all -- of the tracks show
unknown artist and album name, and the track name is of the form "01 -
The most frequent case is that all tracks lose this information.
Sometimes one, and rarely two, end up with the correct metadata.
