I think it's exactly the other way round. Only id3v1 tags should be affected because many tag writers fill up the tag with spaces instead of null-bytes (null-bytes is what the tag documentation says should be used).
id3v2 tags work differently and have variable sized fields and thus cannot show such a problem.

Btw, I know how and where to fix the bug but I would like to wait for another comment by Scott Wheeler first as he is the master of taglib and knows more of id3 tags than I do :)

It's meant to be external to Noatun so I can do releases more often :)
Also it kind of duplicates the default splitplaylist.
