#17 can't browse by folder on xbox360 in svn673


Prior to the new config file chages, I could browse through my shared folders on the xbox360. I used to have the following in my xbox section of vfolders.cfg

<vfolder name="Video" id="2">
<vfolder name="Actor" id="10" />
<vfolder name="Album" id="14" />
<vfolder name="All Video" id="8">
<items type="videoItem" />
<vfolder name="Folders" id="21" />
<vfolder name="Genre" id="9" />
<vfolder name="Browse Folders" id="21">
<shared_dirs full_extend="true" />

That last section was as recommended on various ubuntu forums - and it worked for earlier versions (svn 662, I think?)

I can't seem to get the same behaviour in the new version, now matter how I try variations.
(it now complains about having two vfolders with id 21, which is fair enough, but all variations that I've tried don't work.

instead, the xbox vfolders "all video" and "folders" are identical - one long list of every video file from every directory (no folders appear at all).

I'm currently using the default xbox.cfg for vfolders and devices

    by the way, this is different to 2980120 - I don't see any folders at all, so it's not just folders with the same names that are flattened.

    I'd assume this is related to the piles of:
    TODO handle path : folder*
    when rebuilding the virtual folders. I took a quick glance and it doesn't look trivial. This is pretty much a dealbreaker for me.
