Looks like this only shows up when queueing more than one directory tree.
If I only add one artist with one album everything is fine, but as soon as I add several the program hangs.

What exactly are the requirements to reproduce this? A specific number of files and/or directories?

And could any one of you attach the output of "soundconverter --debug" when reproducing the issue? Further, is it reproducible also with "soundconverter -j 1 -d"?
