Bug Description

In Disco Dingo Gnome-Music 3.31.90 is unable to read music.

The folders of the albums are in the directory "Musique", but it seems gnome-music doesn't accept it's a symlink.

Error message (in terminal) : 09:52:15 WARNING /home/chris/Musique is a symlink, this folder will be omitted

Albums, cover images and list of songs are visible, but gnome-music unable to read music. Sometime it crash at the attemp to play music.

If i delete the symlink and create a "true" directory, gnome-music work.
But even after erased and re-created the symlink, it doesn't play music (but it read the covers and the list of songs).
