Multple entries in playlist

Bug Description

On my disk each artist has its own directory. Each album is a subdirectory in the artists directory. When I select the artist in Amarok I normally get the list of all songs grouped per album. Amarok plays each song of the playlist (of all albums) without a problem.

Opening my latest artist selection I saw double entries in the list. However, not all songs are doubled.

FWIW, each directory contains a m3u file containing the song listing made by WinAmp. But every album has a m3u file. I selected another artist, where all songs are single, went back to the previous artist, and saw the double songs again. On disk no double entries are in the directory.

Please try the following: do a full collection rescan, then restart Amarok.
This is a long standing bug in the Collection browser we can't solve as we do not know what triggers it. Most likely it is a caching problem with the Collection browser display.
