Previously, I'd deleted all rockbox files to no avail. I just deleted
*.tcd (disconnecting the drive and reconnecting to ensure deletion)
and rebuild the database. I still have three misspellings for Alanis
Morrissette, even though the id3 entries are all the same, and all
albums reside in the same directory. I submit that perhaps Rockbox is
doing something else under the covers that recovers the database.
Again, this occurs on a Jukebox FM Recorder.

Heck, if I could get into the *.tcd files I could force the
correction, but I've yet to look.
