Tags are getting overwritten, even with overwrite_tags=false

I've been testing and noticed that even if you specify overwrite_tags=false, the id3v1 (maybe others) DO get overwritten.

I tested with my script AND demo.write.php.

For example, I want to change the title but leave the Artist, album info the same. When I set JUST the title I loose all the other info!

To test with demo.write.php, 'remove' the album field (rename it to something else) and run the demo. Set a new song title and save and you'll see that the album value has been cleared! I've tested again and again and if I didn't know better this is the same as a bug from 2005 I found:

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=525&p=1678&hilit=ov ... tags#p1678

Any ideas? Am I missing something? Again, I've confirmed this bug with your demo... but you need to rename the album field so it doesn't simply re-write what was already there.

Cheers.
