Identical tags

I was updating a few books, when I suddenly noticed I had identical tags in those books.

I found out they are added when I say "set metadata from selected format". All fields are overwritten with the new data, except the tag. Instead of overwriting it, it adds the "new" (which is the same as the old) tag.

Is this a bug, or a setting I missed somewhere?

This in the Edit Metadata window, correct? Saying OK will just leave you a single tag there should not be two tags after you leave the window. I've noticed this for quite a while now.
