Podcast issue

One of the nice additions to 1.4.4 is the ability to associate a local file 
with a podcast.

Good for:
1. Associating podcasts already downloaded otherwise with the amarok podcast 
2. Sometimes gets around the VBR podcast bug.
3. Lets you download more efficiently with wget and still manage in amarok.

Thanks for this feature.

but I have a problem with it that I don't know how to fix.

The little dialog that allows you to associate defaults to the default 
directory for the particular podcast.  Good design.  But it allows you to 
associate the entire directory with a single podcast. I am not sure why 
anybody would want to do this, but it can be done inadvertently.  And once it 
is done it seems it can't be undone.  The only way to fix the association 
seems to be to "delete the downloaded podcast".  Oh no! Will this delete the 
entire directory?  This association should be usable to change the 
association without deleting the currently associated media file.

Is there a current work-around?
