I am in agreement about iTunes behaving poorly.

However, I've been discussing what they do since they are by far the
largest installed player.  So if you are going to add files that may
have been tagged by iTunes then it is worth understanding what the
heck they have done.  Especially around the frame size bug... if you
are going to add files from an iTunes tagged library, then you should
at least consider that case.  See http://id3.org/iTunes for more

Hopefully others on the list are reading the responses and making sure
I'm not lying to you :-)

Dunno.  I only use it when I need to see what they are doing when
given certain tags ;-)
