Default Amarok won't play my mp3's anymore

After doing an emerge --update world today and rebooting my compi Amarok will
not play my mp3's anymore. I get the following error message "Too many errors
encountered in playlist. Playback has stopped." I have tried to delete ~/.xine
as suggested after a google search on the error string.

If I start Amarok with the --debug flag I see the following output:
--------------------------------------------------8<-------------------------------------
amarok: [EngineController] [WARNING!] Phonon failed to play this URL. Error:
"17:24:15: input_file: File not found:
>file:///var/Music/mp3/Wilmer%20X/Den%20bl%C3%83%C2%A5%20v%C3%83%C2%A4gen%20hem%20-%20En%20samling/06%20-%20Teddys%20rum.mp3<
"
--------------------------------------------------8<-------------------------------------

The file is there:
$ ll /var/Music/mp3/Wilmer X/Den blå vägen hem - En samling/06 -
Teddys rum.mp3
-rwxr--r-- 1 dan users 5645291 Jul 2 2002 /var/Music/mp3/Wilmer X/Den bl??
v??gen hem - En samling/06 - Teddys rum.mp3

The only thing I can see that was upgraded during the update wit relation to
sound is "media-soundhonon" (4.3.50_pre20090520 -> 4.3.80-r1)

Any suggestions?

Have you even tried copying this file to the current working directory
and naming it with no non-English characters?


Try a foo.mp3 file with no tags. Does it work?

Stroller.

Playing a mp3-file containing no non-ascii characters works OK, but as soon as
Amarok tries to play a file containing UTF8 characters it fails. I have found
the following KDE bug https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=198008 which is the
same problem as I have. I am now "playing" with convmv to see if changing the
encoding to/from UTF8 changes anything.
