There's been some posts about this. Apparently it is a problem with the itunes database file, when "Music" doesn't work with Cover Flow but all the other sections (Podcasts, Movies, etc) are OK.
Here is an older thread
You can either make a new playlist that shows all your music, or rebuild your itunes database ITL file from the XML using these directions - it will keep everything except the Date Added field.
Thanks for your help. I spent about five hours trying to figure this out last night. The thing is, iTunes worked just fine....it was just SO INCREDIBLY ANNOYING that I couldn't stand it!
In the end, I decided to load an older iTunes library and everything worked and looked fine so I determined the library was corrupted and somehow whatever garbage that had crept it's way into my ituneslibrary file was causing the window size confusion.
It would seem to me that Apple might offer a simple util that could look for inconsistencies in the iTunes library file and clean it up. It would probably be a pretty easy tool to code and might save some headaches....it certainly would have saved me about five hours I'll never get back.
Thanks again for the follow-up info!
