Binary package hint: banshee

Description:	Ubuntu 9.04
Release:	9.04

pjssilva at leia:~$ apt-cache policy banshee
  Instalado: 1.4.3-3ubuntu2

What I expected to happen:

I have my music collection organized using symbolic links. Part of it is
in flac files and is located at /home/backup-cds/flac. Another part is
made of mp3 bought in emusic and some other random files that are
located in /home/musica. I have added a symbolic link in /home/musica to
link to the flac using:

ln -s /home/backup-cds/flac /home/musica/flac

If I use that /home/musica location in banshee it does not find my flac
files. The other music files are seen.

If delete the symbolic link and move the flac folder to /home/musica
banshee can see it.

I would expect that banshee would follow the symbolic link. Rhythmbox
