This is not a major issue, but it's rather irritating:

I have the latest version of XMMS, and when it reads the ID3 tags of MP3 files, it chews them up and spits them out in the playlist window. It skips the first two characters of each part and every other character thereafter. For example, if the track had artist "The Beta Band" and title "Dogs Got A Bone", XMMS would display:

"eBt ad - g o oe"

mpg321 reads the tags just fine, so I don't think it's the underlying C library. I tried reinstalling XMMS, but it still has this problem. Any suggestions?
