Public bug reported:

Some media formats allow for the storage of multiple pieces of artwork
tagged with an image type.  This includes:

 1. ID3v2's APIC artwork
 2. FLAC pictures
 3. vorbiscomment's METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE (which is just a base64 encoded FLAC 

Thumbnailer will only produce a thumbnail for artwork marked as "front
cover" or "other".  This means that if we encountered a file with art
but no "front cover" art, mediascanner might direct an application to
request embedded art (which will fail), when it might be possible to
successfully get online artist/album artwork.

How likely this is to affect users is unknown.  I don't think we've had
any bug reports about this behaviour yet, so files this would effect are
either exceedingly rare or don't exist outside of test suites.
