Looks like something got broke during the DB schema change. It works for 
me on svn from about 3/4 weeks ago but doesn't work on current svn.

This commit is probably the culprit :- 

It's not working with these fields Artist, Album, Compilation, 
Compilation Artist, Genre and Date Imported.

It would be a good idea to open a ticket and get this fixed before the 
release of 0.20.
