adding files with # in path to playlists

Bug Description

my library-path is /home/user/Musik/
there is a subdirectory musik/#2/2_POP/ with some mp3-files.

if i'll add a file to a playlist (own or auto dj) through the browser, the file could not be added. adding directly into an player-slot is working perfectly.

when such a file i.e. /home/user/Musik/musik/#2/2_POP/track1.mp3 it is added into playlist with empty columns for artist, title, album, year, genre, track#, comment.
And when I look into the Location field there's the error. it shows /home/user/Musik/musik/

i think the problem is the hash-character.

This is fixed in trunk - it was because the QUrl::toLocalFile() discards anything after a hash. Albert has changed those calls to QUrl::toString(), (bug #601180)

tested on debian.
