    Well, merde. Now what am I supposed to do? (Again, the annoyance is certainly not directed at you.)

    Any ideas on why it's rewriting ALL of my Comments on EVERY MP3 file? That's ultimately the bigger problem.

    Thanks for the hint on the Log, though.

    Side question: Does this officially count as a bug? Is there an easy way to submit a bug? I've never done it before.
