I have troubleshooted an issue with dragging and dropping from a playlist in beaTunes to iTunes if a user wants to complete this. It may happen within the app but I have not determined this.

Whenever a song has a name, title, album string with an accented character like á,é, í, ó, ú, ý etc. the dragging will not work. Are you aware of this and why it could be caused?

    this used to be a bug in Apple's Java implementation, but at this point I'm not sure whether that's still the issue. I'll have to investigate...

    I checked this out and apparently Apple has fixed the issue in the JVM. I will remove the OS X specific workaround (that was in place to prevent bigger crap from happening) in the next minor update. Thanks for bringing this up!
