For Pete's sake,

This has nothing to do with Amarok being smart or not.  We trust taglib 
to tell us the appropriate length.  If taglib tells us the wrong one, 
how are we supposed to detect this?  Perhaps by asking the tagging 
library to double check every time we ask it for a track's length?  
Triple check?  Really, just one more time, we promise, just this last 
time, please?

Your problem has nothing to do with Amarok.  That's why when you posted 
on our mailing list complaining about a linked bug report that is 
clearly marked as belonging to taglib -- and clearly has a dated SVN 
commit which you then complained didn't fix the problem even though 
you're not running the SVN version -- I sent you over here.

So, how about instead of complaining further about Amarok being smart or 
taglib patches not fixing the problem, *you* get smart and learn how and 
when packages are created for your distribution and what they contain.
