Interesting findings. And it may tie into something I've noticed.

I started a thread about Album Art and where it comes from. One thing I noticed, but hadn't posted yet, when you use Browse/Search to limit the track selection (for example, Artist: xxx), the album art goes crazy. It shows a cover that is totally unrelated to the current track. I haven't had time to drill down and find out what & why, but your post may give me some clues.

I should point out that this is from folder full of mixed tracks, on a USB drive, not a folder of a single artist/CD or a phone. So while YMMV, your discovery has given me some clues.

Thanks for your research!
