    The playlists are designed to contain all the songs.

    An initial loop rips the songs and encodes them. A second loop then starts which will add id3 tags and generate the playlist. A bug in a general library program, libid3, is causing a crash during the tag creation phase that is ending the loop early.

    The faulty library is found on many Linux distributions. On openSUSE the bug causes an immediate crash. On Ubuntu and Debian systems it crashes after the first 9 songs (actually, whenever the track number becomes double digits).

    OpenSUSE has a repaired libid3 in the community repositories and should be mainline fixed in version 11.3. Debian and Ubuntu are being contacted to inform them of the bug. Check your distribution for availability of a bug fix.

    As a work around, if you want your playlist, set the configuration not to create the id3 tags and you will get it.

    I think this was caused by an old bug in the tagging code, which caused
    ripperX to crash when tagging tracks with 2 digit numbers; this was
    apparently fixed some time ago.
