To be more accurate, the audio compression used in swa is mp3. However,
the file formats themselves are not identical, since, as you say, swa
carries additional information. "Tags" would imply that these are using
an XML-like format, but they aren't.
All that said, *generally*, you can rename an swa to an mp3, and the
player will disregard the extra header and file meta-data, as you are
trying to do, though there is nothing to say that some types of players
will not be more sensitive to it.
Does make you wonder what changed between Rev versions which would
cause the issue though.
