C# : TagLib.File.Create() return null in some case...?!

TagLib and TagLib# are related only as far as TagLib# is a port of
TagLib. The TagLib# email list is at
http://forge.novell.com/mailman/listinfo/taglib-sharp-devel I'm
considering changing the name to avoid confusion.

I'm not entirely sure what would be causing this error. If the actual
getCurrentSongPath () is returning a string that is null terminated,
that byte at the end may be throwing off that FileStream, but I'm not
sure as I don't often work in the Windows environment. Please check that
path.Length == path2.Length

Please reply to me instead of the taglib list.
