amarok/juk not loading mp3 tags over samba

hey i finally got samba working for my network here, and am sharing my music/movie collection over the network. Yay for being able to access all that from my junk laptop.

Only prob is that for some reason the tags for the music files are having probs being read in both amarok and juk. Juk just displays blank lines and amarok doesn't load the files at all. They play fine in juk, but w/o tags it's not very useful. the files play fine w/mpg321 (123) and the tags display in that.

Also, tags display fine when the music is copied to a local directory.. so i'm thinking that it's samba. Idk what info to provide, so just ask and i'll post asap, thanx

ps when amarok tries to load files from samba dir, it prints error msgs like this:
TagLib: Could not open file ______
over and over

I had some kind of problem with Amarok not able to load files it didn't have write access to (in a previous version).
