Changing Tags on Currently Playing Song

So I started to notice that after I formatted and installed everything about a month or two ago, that whenever I play a song in Foobar the the %data% coloumn will change from "2004" to "2004-00" or even the exact date "2004-02-26" It annoyed me but I didn't really pay any attention to it. I'm noticing that on some tracks however it'll erase all the tags, example...

Here I'm listening to Ramp - Enjoy the Music (El Grekoz Remix)

Here I'm listening to Ramp - Enjoy the Music (Original Mix)

Once I stop the playback or switch songs the tags come back.

I'm thinking there's something in the options that I haven't found yet that is enabling this. I have version v1.2.3

foobar itself will never touch your files unless you explicitly tell it to. if they really have been changed, it will be some other component. right click the tracks(s)>properties and then the properties tab and look at Last modified. were the tags really changed or is it a playlist display bug?

also, it looks like you're using columns UI because default UI doesn't show the elapsed time. posting a full component list might help.

I didn't mean it permanently changed the tags, but it only appears that it has changed as it goes back to normal when playback is stopped.
I just noticed that when I'm listening to that song, when I fast forward the normal tags pop up for a split second.

Given the presence of said component in your list, are we to assume Marc was correct?

Which tracks? What format(s)? Do they share any traits that might be contributing to the observed behaviour?

Please be more specific when reporting problems.

I've only noticed it on mp3s. I'm thinking that some of my mp3s have ID3v1 and ID3v2 filled out, and when I play the mp3 it switches from one type to the other. Going with the example in my first post, when I open the properties of Ramp - Enjoy The Music the tags will be displayed normally (whether I'm listening to it or not) if I copy and paste each metadata field then paste it on to itself, the problem is fixed for this one file.

It's like I'm editing a field that I can't see. Which is what lead me to believe there must be an option somewhere.
