The problem is that everyone has his own idea of which scheme is "quite
common". The author of the current code seems to have an entirely
different understanding than you: The code looks for a track number at
the end of the title, not at its beginning, so a file name such as
"02 Ivan 1810.mp3" breaks the current heuristic. (See FS#12107 for a
more in-depth description of how the guessing works and when it breaks.)

I think it's better to avoid any surprises by removing the guessing
altogether.
