Missing files when selecting by Album only

I have a problem with one particular album on Winamp 5.01 in the Media Library.

The name of the album is: Lupin the Third Jazz Another "Jazz"

(including the quote marks around the 2nd word Jazz)

This album name appears in the Media Library Album list, and tells me there are 13 tracks. However, if I select this album in the album list, no tracks appear in the track list.

However, if I do a search for the album name, the results DO appear in the track list and play fine, as long as All Albums is selected in the Album list. If I select by the album name, then again no tracks appear, even though the correct number of tracks (13) is displayed next to the album name.

I can also do a selection by artist, or search by artist/album/genre/whatever, and the files DO show up and all 13 play fine.

I can only guess that something in this album name (the quote marks, perhaps?) are triggering a bug in the album selection.

Thanks.

Known issue.

Only known workaround at the moment is
to use two apostrophes instead of quotation marks.

I really hope you'll solve this - I've got a lot of mp3s made from vinyl 7 & 12 inches, thus I've given all these the album title 'TITLE - 7"' or 'TITLE - 12"' since I want to know the format when it's not from a full-length album (=single). It would be a bit hard changing all these titles...

Heh. Same thing happened to me.
I had to go through them all, changing 7" and 12" to 7'' and 12''

I've got an album entitled () (two brackets - it's by Sigur Rós) and it's about the same thing with that.
The correct number of tracks is shown, but when I click the album title more than a 1000 different files are shown in the file window!

Just confirmed that this Quotation Mark problem still exists in Winamp 5.0.2
