I've only just subscribed to this list, so hope these comments are helpful.

Firstly, thanks for a great package - I found it some years ago, and have been 
using it mostly to manage a growing collection of approx 1,000 CDs, and I have 
started logging my book collection more recently.

I used to use a version that I *think* came from the Dag Wieers repository, so 
was probably version 1.3.1. I found a CD which would reliable crash tellico on 
"Import Audio CD data". That was with Linux RHEL5.3. I recently started using 
Fedora 11 with KDE4. The version of Tellico with FC11 is 1.3.5, but it doesn't 
included CDDB lookup. So I downloaded and built tellico-2.0pre1. I now find 
that this version also crashes with the specific disk. (I checked with another 
package that a CDDB entry exists for the disk in question.) Please let me know 
what additional information I can supply if you want to try to investigate - 
happy to mail a copy of the CD if necessary.

A usage question - if I "Import Audio CD data", the new CD gets added to the 
collection, but is then hard to find (I normally edit the tags, as what is 
downloaded from the internet, particularly for classical music, is pretty poor 
much of the time). How can I easily locate a newly added entry?

What is the difference between replace/append/merge when importing CDs? 

When I edit CD details, I noticed that the "Artist" field doesn't automatically 
complete with existing values, whereas "label" and "composer" does - is this 
by design? It is always mildly irritating.

Thanks again for a very useful program - keep up the good work.

Best wishes -- Peter (peter at petermayes dot org)
