13:01 < shadeslayer> yeah only on first start
13:01 < JontheEchidna> (It does continue on fine normally afterwards)
13:01 < Riddell> yes, I wonder if it's just because the default music location isn't set, the next thing it does is ask if it can use ~/Music
13:02 < Riddell> which is daft, it should just use it no questions asked, it's a sensible default

I can reliably reproduce this bug by removing this entry from the amarokrc:

[File Browser]
Current Directory=/home/jonathan

Looks like the readConfig() entry of the FileBrowser class doesn't suggest a default when reading the config. I'll see if adding /home as a default-if-nothing-is-there value fixes things.

Yep, that was it. I haz patch. I'll see about sending it upstream, and commit it to our packages in the meantime.

Whoa, my exact changes had already been made upstream for 2.3.0. O_O

This one will be fixed once 2.3.0 from bzr is uploaded.
