Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

Testing intrepid I ran into the following bug that I observed when using rhythmbox to extract a music CD:
All the spaces in the Title, Song-title and so on are replaced by %20.
I the Musician is called: "Manu Chao" the corresponding folder will be namend: "Manu%20Chao".
This seems to be a regression compared to Hardy where this bug did no occur.

To reproduce:
a) insert a music CD
b) open rhythmbox
c) select extract
d) open /home/yourname/music to see that all spaces are replaced by %20 (also in subfolders) for the newly
extracted CD.

By the way: If you Choose Edit/Preferences/Music and you look at the example path then you should also see
that the spaces are replaced by %20.

I am using
Version: 0.11.6svn20081008-0ubuntu2

Keep up the good work.
