Hi, I was using Mopidy and it worked fine. Without any change to config, I altered my collection.
I run a ReplayGain software on in in order to get relative volume levels. I am aware that this is not supposed to work with Mopidy, but I also use other players on the same collection.

After that, local scan started to crash. I had a backup of my collection and restored that, but I still get the crash and there is no info that would help me to identify on what songs it crashes.

Log attached.

Have looked at mopidy.txt and searched for similar errors. The cause for this error might be that your locale LANG variable is unset, see SO. At least I got the same error with locale_decode(bytestr) when I unset my LANG variable.

I propose that local_decode() returns a string to scan.py if it fails with decoding. The error string could be "Codec can't decode content. Check your LANG setting ($ echo $LANG).". Then I assume that the scanner stops at the track that failed, thus giving better feedback to the user.

(I can implement a fix for the issue.)

This exception can happen when locale is unset, which effectively means that ascii char set is used.
