nice job - thank you!
I just applied your original patch [1] against the build of 0.20 fixes
[2] that I'm running here (revision 13131). It applied cleanly and i'm
lovin' it.
It really helps the user experience and makes mythmusic feel a wee bit slicker.

now I'm off to find a script that uses id3 tags to download AlbumArt,
I've got about a hundred albums or there abouts missing albumart...
