What does mpeg_current_track(); return? Does it setup a storage location and then return a pointer to it?
From the snippet I see, I don't see a storage location, just a pointer to a storage location.
Also, the function must also populate the entire struct, or well, at least the id3->path field.
Just some thoughts. Hope this helps.
