retrieving CD information from MusicBrainz fails most of the time

banshee (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

On slightly extended test from previously the current banshee failed to return any cd info on 15 out of 20 randomly chosen cd's., so at best a 25% success rate

Patching the current source with the attached patch saw a 100% success rate on those same 20 cd's
Retrieving the proper album art, while not perfect, was acceptable with about a 75% success rate which is understandable due to the nature of the patch
In lieu of a better solution some consideration should be given using this patch in the meantime or using a banshee source where the commit was applied
Source of the patch can be found here -

This was fix released for 11.10 in banshee (2.1.3-1ubuntu1)
However changelog points to a natty bug that points to a SRU for natty that wasn't fixed as of last comment there , so possibly too bad for 11.04
