I want "The Cure" to appear before "Devo" in gtkpod (just as it does on my ipod), so I added the word "the" to the list of words at
and made sure "Artist" was checked just below. Things worked swell for the sort tabs, but the coverart ("Album Art") display was unaffected. This patch fixes that. Now gtkpod's "Album Art" order matches that in my nano3g's "Cover Flow".
