Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: sound-juicer

When there is a double point character [:] in the track title, this character is indeed placed in the file name of the extracted track. This goes well when the file is place on a local volume (ext3). But when this file is copied over to a Samba-share, the file name gets scrambled because the double point character is illegal on Samba.
Solution should be to translate this illegal character (or maybe more) *automatically* to something like an underscore [_].

Note: setting 'Remove special characters' in preferences does indeed
solve this problem, but it is far to rough. Spaces are also replaced by
an underscore and that's not necessary because it's not an illegal
