Metadata download overwriting Author/Title fields

Hi,
I have noticed since updating to 0.8.26 that when downloading metadata, the author and title fields are overwritten with the downloaded information even though I have these fields deselected in the preferences.
Previously it worked as expected - tags, comments, ISBN etc were downloaded but the author/title was left alone.

0.8.26 binary install on Ubuntu 11.10 64 bit.

Kovid has fixed this bug and the fix will be in the next release.

It also now overwrites the rating
i had to turn it off for each data source, even though the global setting was unchecked

Not regardless of settings, only when using bulk metadata download. One book at a time metadata download still works fine.

That said, this too is fixed and the fix will be in the next release.
