      Description

      Picard attempts to parse the track number from file name if it is not set. For this it uses a set of regular expressions, but if those fail it uses the lowest number it can find in the title.

      This leads to many false positives as discussed in PICARD-1567

      Examples where numbers get extracted as track numbers falsely:

      30,000 pounds of Bananas

      Symphony no. 5 in D minor

       

      We should look into improving the heuristics here. Maybe just remove the generic case of extracting any number and focus more on typical specific cases like it is already done with the existing regular expressions.
