Description aditsu 2011-08-26 22:31:09 UTC
Version:           2.4.3 (using KDE 4.7.0) 
OS:                Linux

I used the "Get Tags from MusicBrainz" button to identify a song, I selected one of the results and updated the tags. After that, I realized that it wasn't a correct match, so I clicked that button again, but then I got only one result - the one I selected before.
I went back and cleared all the tags of the song and tried the button again - still only that result. I restarted amarok and tried again - still only that result. I even tried putting some bogus stuff in the tags (a completely different artist and song name) but the result was still the same.
It is as if it PERMANENTLY burned the MusicBrainz identification into that song.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
See description

Expected Results:  
For the same file name and values of tags it should give the same list of results

I thought I changed this behavior back to regular search, but obviously I didn't. 1 minute. :)

Songs can have a MusicBrainzID? Can that be cleared?
Also, is 2.5 coming out soon? If not, then can the fix be backported?
