Bug Description

I stumbled across a problem that Exaile submits wrong information to via the AudioScrobbler plugin. I'm playing a mp3 that has no id3-information set - the fields are empty. When submitting the artist and title are shown as "none" and thinks that it means this track:

In addition to that Exaile shows no information inside above my playlist. There Exaile could show the filename instead.

I then tried to get some information from the shell, the track was still playing:
$ exaile --get-artist
Not playing.
$ exaile -q
status: playing, title: None, artist: None, album: None, length: 5:15, position: 79% [4:11]

The way information is shown on the commandline could be overthought. If -q is used Exaile could return path & filename, if i.e. --get-artist is used an empty string could be returned - or something that lets the user know that no information is avaible.

The Exaile revision I use is 2541 from bazaar. OS is Linux Mint 7.

Steps to reproduce:
*Load a mp3 with empty tags (no artist and no title seem to be enough) into your Exaile.
*Activate the AudioScrobbler-Plugin and enter name/pw for
*Start playing with scrobbling enabled
*Visit your page on and see you playing the track None by None.
