[Bug 502127] Re: folder name contain "#" sign - amarok does not play media files

Thanks for reporting this bug, Adam.  It turns out that it was just
recently reported to the Amarok devs on their mailing list too[1], so
they talked about it a bit there.  The bug appears to be one in the
phonon backends, specifically the gstreamer backend.  Try switching to
the xine backend, which seems to work better anyway.  It's the one that
Amarok devs recommend.

For a more long-term solution, we need a new version of Phonon pulled
into Ubuntu 10.04, which should be happening automatically anyway.  The
bugfix was included there, and the patch was committed to SVN on
2009-06-18 [2].  To ensure that this happens smoothly, please give one
of the later lucid alphas a shot (live CD should be fine) and see if the
bug is still around then.
