Hi Jeff,

then... i don't know. I dumped my backup from my old server into the new 
amarok db. configured amarok to use the new location /storage/mp3s/ and 
reentered db information. after that amarok could connect to db and told 
me that i would have to listen to "a few of my songs" to get stats.
this is why i asked if i have to do a rescan of the collection.

i even tried to trigger amarok via dcop to scan for collection changes. 
that didnt work either.
i think amarok just didnt realise that the position of mp3s changed.

any ideas?
