[Bug-gnupod] Bug in Pearlscript for 0.98.3

If have downloaded a certain mp3 file form the Internet.
"Terry Jacks' Season in the Sun"
It has illegal charcters in the mp3-id-tags for artist, album, title & comment.
With mp3info I can set correct "looking" ones.
But when adding this mp3-file with gnupod_addsong to my mounted ipod-shuffle,
then the next add of a correct mp3-song gives an error.
Also I can not make a new ITuneDB getting also an error (without adding a 
further mp3 file).

The reason seems that in /mnt/ipod/iPod_Control/.gnupod/GNUtunesDB.xml
the Terry Jacks-song added an xml-enty with illegal characters.
Do you want to have this misterious mp3-file which caused the script to fail?


not well-formed (invalid token) at line 90, column 140, byte 31402 at 
/usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux/XML/Parser.pm line 187
You see I use Perl-5.8.8 on an x86-64 Linux-(2.6.23 Kernel) running 

I wonder why I can not remove these illegal values with mp3info ?
They seem to be invisible for mp3info :-/

I changed the mp3-tags already and it now looks like:
># mp3info -x -F "Seasons In The Sun.mp3"
File: Seasons In The Sun.mp3
Title:   Seasons In The Sun             Track: 10
Artist:  Terry Jacks
Album:   Seasons In The Sun             Year:  
Comment: PapaStalade By Laurentiu       Genre:  [255]
Media Type:  MPEG 1.0 Layer III
Audio:       128 KB/s, 44KHz (joint stereo)
Emphasis:    none
CRC:         No
Copyright:   No
Original:    Yes
Padding:     Yes
Length:      3:24

but when adding with gnupod_addsong.pl I get the following output:

# gnupod_addsong.pl -m /mnt/ipod/ *
gnupod_addsong.pl Version 0.98.3 (C) Adrian Ulrich
+ [MP3 ][  1] Seasons In The Sun           | PapaStalin                   
| Terry Jacks         
> Writing new XML File, added 1 file(s)

These looks like the old original mp3-id3-tags
and this is the new added entry in GNUtunesDB.xml:

  <file addtime="3299864973" album="PapaStalin" artist="Terry Jacks" 
bitrate="128" cdnum="0" cds="0" comment="æ~U®æ~_¿ï¹~Id3v1ÿï¹~Made By 
 PapaStalin" composer="" fdesc="MPEG 1 layer 3 file" filesize="3269693" 
genre="Oldies" id="87" 
path=":iPod_Control:Music:f01:1_Seasons_In_The_Sun.mp3" playcount="0" 
songnum="0" songs="0" soundcheck="" srate="44100" time="204329" 
title="Seasons In The Sun" year="2004" />

If I correct all these cryptic entries, then everything works fine. But I wonder
why mp3info this can not and later the gnupod_tools fails.
