Hi Thomas,
  I've applied that patch to r27875, which involved a certain amount of

I'm trying to test it with a set of .ogg files which have the albumsort
field set.

If I enable logging in metadata/vorbis.c I can see the albumsort tag
being read in with the correct value.

However it's not appearing in the database (database_10.tcd) - instead
it's just using the standard album tag. I think that's because there's
an "addfallback" macro in the patch which uses the album tag if the
albumsort tag is not found.

I'm trying to track down what's going wrong, but I'm having trouble
finding exactly where the data from the .ogg files gets read in. I guess
it somehow gets triggered from the database initialize, but I can't find it.

Any ideas?

kind regards

Alan Fitch
