[Bug 506383] [NEW] Amarok 2.2.0 doesn't play any songs with a # in the filename.

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: amarok

Songs from Files with a # in the filename are correctly added to the database and I can add them to the playlist.
But when it should play them, amarok stops playback. When I then push the "play" button, amarok skips to the next song.

Renaming the files solves the problem.

Example filenames are: "Song #14.m4a", "Muzzle #1.wma", "#wasfailt.mp3"
(without " of course)

I'm using Ubuntu 9.10
with amarok-2:2.2.0-0ubuntu2
