easytag changes after start to a certain directory and crashes sometimes.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start easytag in the current directory with

$ easytag .

After start it scans the mp3, ogg, etc... files in current directory. When finished, it changes every time to the directory
/opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/plug_ins/Multimedia/MPP/ and stays there.
It outputs the following:
$ easytag .
MPC header not found for file '/opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/plug_ins/Multimedia/MPP/Real.mpp'

2. Sometimes (seems to depend on the number or properties of the media files in current directory) it crashes after scanning the files in current directory:

$ easytag .
EasyTAG version 2.1.8: Abnormal exit (PID: 3727).
Received signal SIGSEGV (11)
