When i saw that some audio formats, like wavpack for example used to store the cuesheet in a tag field called 'CUESHEET' , i thought it was a good idea so i started to do the same with my
monkey audio files.
But then i discovered that many of those files that has the cuesheet embedded where not seen anymore by foobar (BTW before you ask, i use v0.9.8.6).
I did a lot of tests to try to find the exact circonstances but I don't understand it.
Here's a sample of a cuesheet that you can copy and paste in a 'CUESHEET' field of any ape files
with mp3tag. After that, go in foobar and add the folder where the file is and you should see that
the file will not be seen.
Then you go back in mp3tag and remove the last character (the zero) save the tag and go back in foobar to rescan the folder and then the file will be seen.

Is it related to foobar? to the monkey audio input plugin or to mp3tag? (altough probably not) i
don't know but since many of us use a combination of these 2 great software i thought that it could
be interesting for some.
If someone can or can't reproduce the behavior please let me know.
