List of missing files disappears in v2.89a


While open several mp3 files into app from m3u list file, the app should open after finish of this opearation the list of the missing files in special new window over the app main window, but since v289a that function disappeared.

I'checked the situation by reinstall and move from another machine ver. 286 and 288a—this function working properly in that versions, but after install (clean)/ move from backup (with settings) v.289a, that function disappeared again.
After finish of operating with m3u file, app shows in the columns list of available only files, the indicator in status bar shows the number of available only files.

It is a little hard to understand what you are doing.
What I guess: you can set in Tools>Options>Messages which messages you want to see. So perhaps you mean that message dialogue when you talk about

See if there are other options selected than in the other installation.

So I just created an m3u playlist, edited it manually so that it references filenames that do not exist as files.
I did not get a message box, regardless of which options I selected for messages.

What is remarkable though:
The statusbar shows the number of files that were included in the playlist (in this case 8 files) and their total duration
This came as a surprise to me.
And the statusbar also shows the number of actually loaded files (in this case 4 files) and their duration.
The file list itself only shows the 4 files that could be loaded because they had matching file names in the playlist - this I would consider as logical behaviour.

MP3tag has no function to show the missing files, yet it shows at least the number and duration in the statusbar. I think that this is somehow misleading.

Thank you for your help, I try harder to explain the situation:

  1. I made the working m3u list in the folder with mp3.
  2. After that I removed some mp3 from that catalog.
  3. I re-open now the same list.
  4. After finish of the opening that m3u list I receive this window as presented.

What is the problem, I receive that confirmation window as usual only in older versions of MP3Tag (here 288a), the new one (289a) doesn't display this window at the same situation (open m3u list as describbed above with some missing files on it).
