I also have problems with Rhythmbox and some ID3 tags.
In addition to the problems that Aaron comments, with the
genres (I have similar problems) has problems with the
year of some tracks.

I have verified that is not a problem of gstreamer0.10-good.
I didn't even have installed gstreamer0.10-tools in my system,
which provides gst-launch-0.10. After installing it,
I've proved with a mp3 file with problems:

$ gst-launch-0.10 filesrc location=01-Burnout.mp3 ! id3demux ! fakesink - t

Setting pipeline to PAUSED...
Pipeline is PREROLLING...
FOUND TAG: found by element "id3demux0".
  title: Burnout
  artist: Green Day
  album: Dookie
  dates: 1994-01-01
  track to number: 1
  genre: Rock track
  count: 14
  duration: 127000000000
Pipeline is PREROLLED...
Setting pipeline to PLAYING...
New clock: GstSystemClock
Got EOS from element "pipeline0".
Execution ended to after 129597000 ns.
Setting pipeline to PAUSED...
Setting pipeline to READY...
Setting pipeline to NULL...
FREEING pipeline...

As you can see the genre reported is "Rock" and my Rhythmbox
classifies it as "Alternative & Punk".

I have a very extensive collection of mp3,
and similar problems in other files. If necessary,
I can send them to you. I attach the mp3 file.
