Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: amarok

I use an iRiver ifp device and transKode with Amarok.  When trying to
cram a specific playlist onto the 128MB device at the highest possible
quality I stumbled upon a minor user interface bug.  The status bar
immediately under the Transfer Queue container gives the size of the
files on disk regardless of the settings chosen in transKode.

For example, adding a 20 MB flac file to the queue with transKode set to
convert it to a 64kbps mp3 file results in a queue size of 20MB.  Of
course the resulting mp3 file will be about 1/10th the size of the flac.

My suggestions: If there is a way for Amarok to know what size the
playlist will be after transKoding that number should be used instead.
If not, an estimated guess would be useful.  If nothing else a note in
the tooltip or status bar that the transfer size may change depending on
transkode settings would make it clear where the number comes from.
