Minor bug with Author -> Author Sort
Maybe the former can be fixed by implementing a rule for moving only the indefinite article when the field says "The XXXXX XXXX" or something. I have no idea how the latter could be fixed for only those cases, maybe someone else does.

There is no way in general to implement author -> author sort "correctly" for all author names. That is why you can edit the author sort field manually for special cases like these.

Yes, you will find that their are always a few books that fall outside of calibre's standard expectations. In these cases you just have to come up with a way to handle things and use them consistently.
One thing I did was to create a personal "Manual of Style" book which I entered into my Library as a standard book. Making it readily available if I need to refer back to it at a later date. I'll never remember what I did for case X a year or two from now!
