Just posting a small bug, hope I don't get shot..

If you point one of your sources to a directory that's on the local filesystem, and said directory has 1 (or more) symlinks, it will cause funky behaviour in XBMC. The symlinks won't display, but also, the directories/files within the said directory with symlinks won't display (or only certain, random ones) will display.

moving all the symlinks out of said directory returns the normal behaviour.

Thanks for the report - if you want to have a go at fixing it, check CHDDirectory.cpp and the support files for the win32 wrapping routines (findfirstfile et al)

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.
Do not e-mail XBMC-Team members directly asking for support. Read/follow the forum rules.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.
