Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

When I right click on a song, or multiple songs, and I change the artist name, rhythmbox changes it properly, but after a few seconds it undoes the changes and returns to the previous artist name.
This bug does not apply to the song name or any other property, just the artist property.

NonfreeKernelModules: nvidia
Package: rhythmbox 0.12.0-0ubuntu4

Opened rhythmbox, clicked on Recently Added, and then tried to rename artist name from "Quejas de Bandoneon (tango 1924 Orq. Anibal Troilo)" to just "Anibal Troilo" on the file:
/shared/mp3/tango/Various/La Historia del Tango/01-Quejas de Bandoneon (tango 1924 Orq. Anibal Troilo)-Quejas de Bandoneon (tango 1924 Orq. Anibal Troilo).mp3

hi, i have the same problem under Lucid Lynx. However, it's the same when i try to edit the tags in easytag or another media player, so i don't think this is a rhythmbox-issue! My music folder has reading+writing permission, but somehow the system doesn't act like it.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to look at all reported bugs in a timely manner. There have been many changes in Ubuntu since that time you reported the bug and your problem may have been fixed with some of the updates. It would help us a lot if you could test it on a currently supported Ubuntu version. When you test it and it is still an issue, kindly upload the updated logs by running apport-collect <bug #> and any other logs that are relevant for this particular issue.
