Just a warning for any one that uses TXXX frames in his ID3v2.3 tags.
When you use windows explorer in Windows 7 to change a tag (i.e. change the star rating) it will alter all TXXX frames.
The original content is removed and replaced with part of the name of the TXXX

Yes, I've reproduced this. It seems through the entire 7 beta, nobody caught this. Oh, well. I haven't looked more deeply at what it's exactly writing, but yes... the custom TXXX frames are damaged if one uses the Explorer UI to manipulate the ID3v2.3 tag.
