[mythtv-users] MythMusic: strange file tree

After inital trials with a few temporary music folders, I have 
re-organised my music within the directory tree /var/lib/mythtv/music/ as


etc, and I wanted MythMusic to re-scan (using "directory" in the 
options). Strangely, there seems to be a gap in the tree as it is displayed:

All My Music/ <blank> /Classical
All My Music/ <blank> /Jazz
All My Music/ <blank> /Rock

Hence I made /var/lib/mythtv/music/ empty, scanned it again, hoping that 
MythMusic would now clear the database; then I moved the music folders 
back and had a scan; still no success. In a further attempt to remedie 
the situation, I logged into mysql and cleared all music related tables 
by hand, then rescanned. Unfortunately, the problem persisits.

I wonder why MythMusic inserts an empty branch, or how and why it slips 
in. It is not a major issue, as soon as I am down any branch the blank 
branch cannot be seen.

Kind regards,
