I'd try with fresh MythMusic db tables.
You can force MythMusic to recreate the database tables like this

DROP TABLE musicmetadata;
DROP TABLE musicplaylist;
DELETE FROM settings WHERE value='MusicDBSchemaVer';

the next time you run mythmusic it will recreate the tables. You will
then have to rescan your music. You will loose all your playlists
and smartplayists though.
