In this case, I have no idea what the problem is.
I use a costum gtkpod version that uses taglib for that.
Look in the taglib branch in gtkpod's repository to see what's different in
what you did with taglib and what I did.

Thanks for the fast response!
What I did not mention before, the iPhone shows the 'Loading Lyrics...'
message which never disappears. For me that looks like the DB hast he
'lyrics' flag but can't read them from the track.
Are there any apple documents on that lyrics behavior? I guess not :-( do
you have any other source for this information? or a workaround? a refresh
with apple script should add that flag to the DB right?
