Yes. That's the first of the set.

Maybe. But none of the content of what is written there has been
imported. Neither for the tracks, nor the comment I see now.

No pb, I'm not in a hurry :-)

Strange indeed? In fact I was now under the impression that the
musicbrainz search was taking precedence over the FreeDB one.

In my tellicorc I have:

[ImportOptions - FreeDB]
CD-ROM Devices=/dev/cdrom,/dev/dvd,/dev/sr0,/dev/sr1
Cache Files Only=false
Last Device=/dev/sr1

And my MusicBrainz entry look like this:

[Data Source 12]
Custom Fields=

Anything I could do to have more debug info so you could have more
details ?
