with the current songdb / songdbv2, multi artist albums work like this..
there's 1 album, and every artist that has a song in the album, has
a link to the album, the album contains all the songs in the album, of
any artist. (the current code does not yet filter away other artists)
obviously, the artist property of the album is completely unusable..
my suggestion: whats needed to make it work properly is a filter for
the current artist when browsing the album when you're coming from an
browse artist->album approach, and show all the songs of the album
(of any artist) when you're coming from browse albums->album.
also, at the moment showing all songs of an artist is broken cause of
rashers fix, i have yet to investigate how to fix that.
It'd be nice if people would report it if they come across any other
bugs (do make sure you've rebooted though)
