            flac tags
            Not reading flac tags here. Using version 2.2.0-1 Ubuntu package. Is it just me?

            btw, this is a great program. I installed it on my server when I was upgrading my desktop and couldn't use Amarok. That was two weeks ago, and I haven't reinstalled Amarok yet :) Five stars!
