Unmodified tags with special characters are not seen
Audacious doesn't seem to see unmodified audio tags that contain special characters (like accented vowels). If these tags are modified by a tag editor (I use Puddletag), then they appear like normal even if the special character is unchanged.

WARNING charset.cc:79 [whine_locale]: Cannot convert from locale (UTF-8): M�sica Instrumental Andina
After changing the fallback encoding setting to ISO-8859-1 from UTF-8, everything was fine. Back when 3.5 was released, though, ISO gave me various problems but UTF-8 worked for everything. I wonder why it's different now (I'm on 3.6, but also had this problem on 3.5.2).

Probably related to the problems you had in 3.5:
This announcement does also mention that you should keep ISO-8859-1 as a fallback even after updating. You do not need to add UTF-8 as a fallback any more in 3.6; it is always the first option tried, and the bug for which it was a workaround, has been fixed.
P.S. Probably the original tags used ISO-8859-1, and Puddletag re-encodes them using Unicode of some sort.
