I also opened a help ticket with Spotify support. They just responded. Check out this response. Keep in mind I selected and reported under category: "Report an error / bug" drop down
Thanks for your feedback on Spotify.
We're always looking to improve Spotify with bigger and better features so we do listen to all of the ideas we get. Sadly, we can't get round to adding them all but we do our best to act on the most popular requests.
And since we opened up Spotify Apps to third party developers there should be lots more features coming in soon that we're sure people are going to love.

This is so sad. I can't believe that they don't even read our error reports. I haven't met this kind of customer service before. I mean I love the spotify service but how they manage all the bugs and etc is sh*t!
Sorry to hear you got some responses like that. We certainly do read what you write.
We are aware of this issue and our top men are on the case. We haven't really said much recently, as we're still working on this matter. It's proven to be a little trickier than we first believed, but hopefully we'll have an update for you soon.
I have a theory as to why they haven't fixed it. I think personal car usage in Sweden is low compared to countries like the US. The streets are laid out in a way conducive to public transportation, walking, or pedal biking. I'm not saying this is a bad thing at all.
Anyway, the developers probably don't run into this issue themselves if they fall into the above transportation categories. Therefore, they don't understand the frustration at looking down at the console and seeing the wrong song name and title displayed and an endlessly incrementing timer.
Myself, I have a 40 mile commute every day and a big screen right in the middle of my G37 blatantly and proudly displaying the wrong band, album, song title, and time right in my face thanks to Spotify. It sounds petty, it sounds #firstworldproblems, whatever!. Day after day, it gets old.
I tried MOG in the past (and even Rdio) and it just wasn't up to par with what I wanted. I decided to try it again about a week ago and I love it. The things I like about Spotify are better in MOG and MOG has things that I wished for in Spotify (e.g. favorite artists, albums, songs; web client or desktop client both work the same so you don't NEED a desktop client, but you have the option; artist only radio or play similar artists.)
I'm cancelling my Spotify account now. I'm not cancelling because of this bug alone, but because of the endless nonsense. If it's not this bug it's another.
If anyone hasn't tried MOG yet, I would highly suggest you do it. They have a free, 14 day, trial.
For everyone else, enjoy your endless bugs and so called "support"
