MB3 can not handle artists with ID3 tgs ending in full stop. eg 't.A.T.u.'

2014-10-19 15:20:01.2458 Info - ImageProcessor: Failed to read image header for E:\MediaBrowser\IBN\artists\t.A.T.u\folder.jpg. Doing it the slow way.
2014-10-19 15:20:01.2458 Error - App: Error getting image information for E:\MediaBrowser\IBN\artists\t.A.T.u\folder.jpg
	Could not find file 'E:\MediaBrowser\IBN\artists\t.A.T.u\folder.jpg'.
	   at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)
	   at System.IO.FileInfo.get_Length()
	   at MediaBrowser.Api.Images.ImageService.GetImageInfo(IHasImages item, ItemImageInfo info, Nullable`1 imageIndex)

Steps to reproduce.


1. Create W:\Music\t.A.T.u\[insert some album here] (no full stop at end because windows file system doesn't support)

MB3 successfully identifies, album/artist and downloads metadata into media collection.

2. Go to metadata manager and change the primary image for the artist.

Error as above.no folder.jpg in collection.


It is odd that on first fetch MB3 handles the artist but cant handle manually fetching artwork from metadata manager.
