Bug#505466: rhythmbox: Fails to transfer albumm covers when adding songs to an iPod

Package: rhythmbox
Version: 0.11.6-1
Severity: normal


When adding songs to an iPod (nano video 4Gb in my case), the album covers are not added.

I have managed to transfer some covers, without I have really understood how.

A similar bug exists on Lanchpad: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/rhythmbox/+bug/117583

A bug exists as well upstream: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=529873
I have tried the proposed patch without success.

I'd be happy to test new patch proposals for testing or provide any required information.
