I just did that. No dice... the updated amarok still doesn't seem to know
anything about my collection. I guess that's at least consistent, since it
didn't know about the collection following the upgrade, which I assume
didn't actually change the database.

Sometimes I feel like I'm an unwilling beta tester. Considering I have a
very vanilla Kubuntu system (no PPAs at all), this kind of thing really
shouldn't happen just because I applied an official update.
