Message info From:Anton Eliasson Subject:Bug#660559: rhythmbox: playlists are destroyed when media files moves or gets deleted Date:Sun, 19 Feb 2012 21:36:24 +0100

Package: rhythmbox
Version: 2.95-1
Severity: grave
Justification: causes non-serious data loss

Dear Maintainer,

I recently moved my entire music library from one location in the
filesystem to
another. This of course caused Rhythmbox to mark these as not found, but it
also removed them from my playlists. Consequently, after re-importing my
library and clearing the not-found list, I lost all my playlists. My
is that playlists are treated somewhat separately from the main library, and
that playlist items are only marked as not found when they disappear,
of removing them completely. They could for example be marked with the
red stop
sign used to indicate that an import failed.
