Solved Issue with MySQL & large music libraries resulting in duplicate artists
#1
With Kodi 17.6/stable, and using MySQL backend for mid-to-large music database (3K albums, 40K songs), I started having problems with a Kodi remote app, suddenly I started seeing artist entries duplicated.

I asked the app dev and he claims that there is a known kodi bug with the Music library when using MySQL backend, claims that his app downloads via JSON chunks of the DB, and that when doing that, the bug in Kodi causes the the same artist to be present in more than one chunk and that causes the problem

    > number of artists Mysql will returns the artists in different order making Kodi return duplicates.

@DaveBlake I was wondering if you are familiar with this issue. I tried to find if there is a bug reported somewhere but couldn't find it in github nor trak. I may not be looking for the bug the right way (maybe it was reported in some other context, perhaps not specific to Music or something like that).

Also any pointer on how to work-around the problem would be great even if temporary, pointers welcome. I tried many different things but couldn't find a way to get rid of the problem
