      Description

      There's at least one bug in libdiscid which causes it to generate bad TOCs, e.g.
      http://test.musicbrainz.org/bare/cdlookup.html?id=RMUhKmKSucSWUIBnEyCEPikkAeY-&tracks=7&toc=1+7+103637+150+20342+44595+62560+82735+89470+115037
      (see http://bugs.musicbrainz.org/ticket/4421, http://bugs.musicbrainz.org/ticket/5421 and http://bugs.musicbrainz.org/ticket/5845 for example)

      Since this is likely to happen to perfectly ordinary users who don't understand why their CD is supposedly invalid (if they even get past the "Bad Request" in big letters ), I think we could come up with an error page that's more user friendly.
