You're welcome.
It's not really an "audio file problem" though, more like a "tagging problem." ID3v2 is an inconsistent, buggy tag format that's definitely not supported by Musepack. APEv2 was created for Musepack and is the only tag format besides APE (no unicode) and ID3 (v1, nothing like v2, though very limited) you should tag MPCs with.
ID3v2 support should be restricted. Programs that offer the ability to tag MPC files with ID3v2 tags should be changed, software authors shouldn't have to deal with supporting ID3v2 in anything besides MP3, which is already a hideously painful task in itself. That's what caused the problem with the Nero plugin, it wasn't designed to recognize MPC files with ID3v2 tags which definitely don't belong there.
