And I thought that was just me, because I use MP3Ext. Has anyone filed a
bug report on this one? Everywhere else I use my MP3's, the Genre Tags
work as expected, but after touching an MP3 with MP3Ext they all show up
as "Blues" in RockBox.

With something like 7500 MP3s, and about 2/3 of them with this problem in
RockBox, I'd rather fix the bug in the software than have to "fix" the MP3

I haven't pursued this because it's not really a show stopper, but if it's
really the fact that RockBox can only handle numeric tags, I'd say that's
a bug. I haven't seen a bug report on this. Has it been addressed
