File naming strangeness

I've just discovered a rather odd "feature" of the DR1000, regarding Mobipocket book listings in the document view.

A Mobipocket book has both a filename, and an internal book title. When you do a "sort by name" (the default sort order) on the home screen, the books are sorted in order of filename, but it's the title that gets displayed for each book. This makes it extremely hard to find books if the title doesn't match the filename.

Does anyone know of a way of displaying the filename rather than the internal title or, alternately, sorting by title rather than filename?

Thanks!

This is probably a silly answer, but you could change the filenames to match the titles before you transfer them to the DR.
