The problem, by example: this edit became (post NGS-migration) this relationship.

There exists an [[IMDb Relationship Type|AR between a soundtrack and IMDb] (also IBDb & IOBDb, btw) and an AR between an album containing samples from a movie and IMDb (the AR doesn't seem to have a wiki page? AnswerMe); henceforth called the soundtrack AR and the samples AR.

I'm guessing the Artist-URL soundtrack AR and the Track-URL samples AR were no problem to convert. According to this table, the Album-URL soundtrack and sample ARs should have been converted/migrated as follows:

AR Type     Now         NGS         Comment     Status in migration scripts
IMDb, ibdb, iobdb Album-URL ReleaseGroup-URL ok OK
IMDb samples Album-URL Release-URL OK

Something seems to have gone wrong with this. The question is: is only the link name wrong, or have the soundtrack AR and the samples AR become the same?

Additional examples:

Soundtrack AR (this one is wrong):
Release-group 'Star Wars: A New Hope' is the soundtrack from 'Star Wars'
Samples AR (this one works as intended,):
Recording 'Release Me' contains samples from 'Independence Day'.

Tangentially: we decided once that a track-URL soundtrack AR was not needed. However, would it not be useful? I note we did have (pre-NGS?; what happened to those? AnswerMe) a track-URL IBDb and IOBDb AR.
