Is there a reason you're doing things this way?  There's no need to
remove the tracks from RB before changing the tags.  As long as the file
modification timestamp is changed, the file will be re-imported within a
couple of seconds (if you have file monitoring enabled) or next time you
start rhythmbox (otherwise).

If there's a problem importing the tracks after you've edited the tags,
they'll be added to an 'import errors' source under the library source.
This probably isn't what's happening, though, because import errors are
practically never transient.  It's unlikely that the initial attempt to
import them would fail, but a later attempt would succeed.
