Hello, Lauri :)
I went back and recompiled extragear.  This time I did something that I
did not do the last time - I ran "unsermake install", cd'd into
extragear/multimedia/kplayer, and THEN ran "unsermake uninstall" in the
"kplayer" directory.  Then "Selected mp3 file | Right Click |
Properties | Metadata" and Voila, all was well :)  Then I changed the
directory to "Info List" view, and all was well there as well :)
If this isn't corrected soon in SVN, and you need to file a bug report
on it, please let me know what the bug number is, and I will add my $.02

Thank you very much,
