Cannot import music-files in rhytmbox

Hi there,
I used to rip and encode music cd's with grip and oggenc, which works pretty
fine. However, I cannot import the freshly encoded files in
rhythmbox, which pretty much sucks. After indicating the
folder to import, an error messages tells me,
"The file is not an audio stream, file:///path_to_file/file.ogg"
for every single file in that folder.
The files are all given filenames with no spaces, only lower case,
id3, id3v2 and ogg-tags are present, is this an issue?

If I encode by using oggenc via command line, no problem with rhythmbox.

Thanx for any suggestion.
