Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

Attempting to transfer any song to my iPod shuffle using rhythmbox produces this error:
Error transferring track
Error creating directory: File exists

Using Hardy, I could transfer songs without error (although the songs did not play on the device, but that's another issue).

Ubuntu 8.10
rhythmbox/intrepid uptodate 0.11.6svn20080807-0ubuntu1
libgpod3/intrepid uptodate 0.6.0-5ubuntu1

Steps to reproduce:
1) Open rhythmbox and connect the iPod
2) Drag and drop a song onto the iPod

What should happen:
3) Track(s) transferred without error.

What actually happens:
3) Track(s) not transferred, and error appears.
