    When MP needs the xml file to display a particular panel, it checks to see if that xml file has been modified on disk, and reloads it if it has been changed.

    This is not entirely true, if you are in a window, then any changes in the files of this window will be applied to the window the next time you enter this window.

    The engine does not check whether the files have changed or not, it just loads them again when entering the window.

    And do not forget that the pictures are cached, if you replace the picture, it may not be updated until it erases the cache.

    Well, I suppose something has to use up all of those MIPs; you cannot keep them for use later. :D

    I have seen this mentioned before. My experience is that in most cases changed graphics are loaded without having to delete the cache. The one case that I noticed where changed graphics were not loaded was (I think) for themes, but I may have misremembered that. o_O

    Ok I could solve my problem by myself. The logs said that the delimiter of that song is not in text form. Although it was already in text form and I deleted the music database, the title information was still not available. I ripped the song again and now it works. I think that something went wrong the first time.
