Details

When extra text, such as album credits and recording
info, are entered in unsupported tag fields (notes, etc.),
other, supported tags (album name, track number), are
sometimes returned as empty, or partial strings in the
WPS.

Workaround for an empty string is to use the conditional
if/else in custom wps file, BUT, there is no easy
workaround when just the first few chars of a string are
returned.

Can this be patched so a supported tag (ex: album
name) is returned as either complete or empty, but not
partial?
This task depends upon

I submitted a patch that may help you somewhat with your
problem. It pretty much solves the 300 byte tag limit. With
the patch the limit is still 300 bytes of tag info, but almost the
entire 300 bytes is used for supported tag info, such as title,
artist, album, etc. All unsupported tags are skipped, so even
with large frames such as album cover art, as in my case,
the wanted tags are saved. Hope this helps.
