I've been using mp3tag pretty satisfied for a long time now,
but today it started doing something extremely weird and I don't know the cause of it as I didn't change anything:
I edit the tags of M4A files with MP3tag.
When I edit a regular text tag and save the file, everything seems fine, but the file is about 1.42 GB large afterwards.
When I download a cover artwork and try to apply it, it either tells me that the file cannot be opened for writing and leaves the tmp-file inside the folder (which is 1.42 GB large) or it actually saves the cover art into the file which is - what a surprise - 1.42 GB large.
I don't know what's up with these 1.42 GB (or 1.32 GiB if you like), and the exact size varies by a few MB every time, but it's always in this magnitude.
I used v2.66 when this problem began and then updated to v2.71, but this didn't help.
I made sure that no other programs like explorer.exe or WMP blocked the file access.
I have more than enough space left on my disk and it's absolutely healthy.
I deleted the config data from the appdata-folder and used a clean installation, but that didn't help either.
This problem is really confusing me.
Thanks in advance!
