Public bug reported:

Affects: rhythmbox (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

When creating a new "automatic playlist" in Rhythmbox when I specify to use the type "path" for the filter and enter "Hooverphonic" for example, this would mean all files in my library which have the word "Hooverphonic" in its path would be selected.
The strange thing however is that Rhythmbox converts the entered word(s) to all smallcaps. Which results in all files with "Hooverphonic" in its path not being selected, since we are using a casesensitive filessystem.

Either leave the case as entered.
Or, this is what I would prefer, make the compare between the filter and the path of a file in the library case-insensitive so when entering "Hooverphonic" will result in selecting files with "Hooverphonic" as well as "hooverphonic" in their paths.
