Long time MediaPortal user and fan.

Just upgraded to 2.3.0RC1. This version continues to show a quite longtime "annoyance":

1. Open Mediaportal
2. Goto My Music
3. Switch to "Share" mode
4. Navigate music folder tree down to album folders
5. Folders containing semicolon in their names do not show folder.jpg or searched coverart
6. All layouts show this behaviour

Thanks and keep up the good work !

    Right. But in my case, only on the first entrance.
    If you navigate one level up and down again, you see the Cover.
    Can you confirm that?

    Been away for a while. Sorry for the long delay.

    The no folder.jpg/searched coverart when folder contains semicolon issue is persistent for me.

    Navigating up/down/in/out produces no result.

    Incidentally this issue also applies to files (both audio and video) with an accompanying JPG ("AudioBook; The Beginning.mp3"/"AudioBook; The Beginning.jpg".... and/or..... "Splattermovie; Part V.avi"/"Splattermovie; Part V.jpg").

    Thanks and keep up the good work !
