banshee started off looking good, I have encountered a serious problem.

For many CD's, banshee can't find the metadata. It found Diana Krall 
just fine, Dead Can't Dance,
but it could not find Janis Joplin.

Importing that album results in "Unknown files" that get clobbered  by 
the next unknown album. This
seems to be a serious bug (according to my Google searches).

Rythmbox never had a problem like this.

Any thoughts?
