Perhaps, but when I changed the title of a track here to a purely
numeric value and read it with the exiftool backend, I didn't get any

However, just to be on the safe side, I've modified
emms-info-exiftool.el to ensure that a title will always be read as a
string. I pushed that to the main git repo (commit 9120240). Can you
please try it out and see if it happens to fix the problem?
