This is a shorter debug output after I cleared out my library. I now have two files in my library, and have rhythmbox set to scan the library on startup.

I ran rb with just one file (Skyscraper) and there was no problem.

I quit, then added Cumbancha, then started again.
 When Cumbancha was scanned during startup, the dialog for id3 tag was thrown up.

Current music library:

02. La Cumbancha.mp3
02. Mmm Skyscraper I Love You.mp3

among others, does removing those from the library stop the issue?
