    When sorting music, the first five list entries are unsorted. Sorting is actually starting from entry #6.

    Steps to reproduce:
    Set Filter = Artist
    Set Sort = Name

    You'll get a list of your artists, however, the first five entries are not correctly enumerated.

    I have the impression that the artist name of the first five entries has a leading space, which would explain the enumeration, So I checked the tags from Windows Explorer and they looked OK. However, inspecting the respective album files show artists as "Name1; Name2" with a space after the semicolon.

    So no bug, but the importer should really strip any leading space from the tag content.
