Question set meta data with ebook-meta and ebook-convert

Hi,

It's me again. I have noticed a problem when setting meta data with ebook-meta or ebook-convert. Sometimes the new meta data is just plain ignored:

Code:
>ebook-meta --index=2355 Perry\ Rhodan\ Nr.\ 2355\ -\ Pabel\ Moewig\ Verlag.epub
Original-Metadaten::
	Title               : Perry Rhodan Nr. 2355
	Author(s)           : Pabel Moewig Verlag [Verlag, Pabel Moewig]
	Publisher           : KEP
	Book Producer       : calibre (0.6.33) [http://calibre-ebook.com]
	Tags                : Perry Rhodan, Science-Fiction
	Series              : PRZ34-TERRANOVA #56
	Language            : UND
	Rating              : 8
	Timestamp           : 2009-05-31 16:40:14
	Published           : 2009-05-31 16:40:14

Ge?nderte Metadaten::
	Title               : Perry Rhodan Nr. 2355
	Author(s)           : Pabel Moewig Verlag [Verlag, Pabel Moewig]
	Publisher           : KEP
	Book Producer       : calibre (0.6.33) [http://calibre-ebook.com]
	Tags                : Perry Rhodan, Science-Fiction
	Series              : PRZ34-TERRANOVA #56
	Language            : UND
	Rating              : 8
	Timestamp           : 2009-05-31 16:40:14
	Published           : 2009-05-31 16:40:14
I know that at least ebook-meta is supposed to silently ignore meta data which is not supported by the format. Only in the example above I try to set --series which should work on ePUB. In fact there is already a series set and I only try to change the index. And sometimes it does work. Rather strange.

And: why is the language set to UND?
