When using the 'Search by year' option in TagCache and selecting an artist from the list, the album list returned contains all albums by the artist, whatever their date.

For example, if I search for '1984', then select U2 from the artist list, I would expect to see only 'The Unforgettable Fire', but I see all U2 albums on my player.

More of the same. This post ( mentions a similar bug:
[code]Also, if I create my own entry ("80's" artist ? year ^ "198" : album ? year ^ "198" : title) I get an artist listing for every song that artist has. For example, AH-HA has only one song (Take On Me) and shows up only once in the artist list, however U2 has over 200 songs on my ipod and is listed as many times in the artist screen.[/code]
This doesn't appear to be the current behaviour, but there are still some duplicate artist entries using the search string above

In summary, the searching and filtering by year seems flaky and perhaps needs a tidy up?

Since the recent updates to Tag Cache, this error has been fixed.
