Thanks for noticing! :)

As far as I can see, the feature works correct. If you have your directory
filter set up in a way that .dirname.mp3 gets shown, it is counted as a file.
Anything else I would call confusing.

I can think of different possible approaches:
- have each mp3 file accompanied by a name clip file; drawback is massive
amount of extra files, cluster waste
- have one file per directory; drawback that it gets inconsistent if you
move/rename files
- add a binary tag to each .mp3 file itself; drawback is that we would
modify the files

I don't really like any of them. Maybe spelling is a primitive, but
pragmatic solution.
