Unfortunately, the replace function does not seem to be working in
mythbuntu nightly builds (mythbuntu 10.0.04 x64).  I also have a bug where
I am unable to exit the playlist editor back to mythfrontend (the menu
comes up, I select exit, it stays in mythmusic), but I'm guessing these are
more likely a theme or mythbuntu problem.

That will definitely help (although it appears I already did this), but I
still feel that when tracks are sorted by album in the playlist editor,
they should be listed in track order not alphabetically.
