Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make
Ubuntu better.You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been
any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue
for you? Do you get the same with Lucid or Maverick? Thanks in advance.

Bug description:
Binary package hint: banshee

This is kind of an extreme edge-case bug, but I thought I'd report it anyway.
I have an album called () by the artist Sigur Ros.  In Banshee, the cover art for this album isn't loaded (it shows the default CD image) even though the cover art is present in the ID3 tag of the file.  I did some investigating, and the cover art cache file for this album isn't being created in ~/.cache/album-art/.  The format for these files appears to be <artist>-<album>.jpg with special characters removed.  Since Banshee removes special characters, and the album name () is entirely special characters, I'm guessing that Banshee can't handle the file called sigurrs-.jpg .
