Lightbulb unexpected behavior when bulk editing

I'm not sure I should report it here, please feel free to remove it if is was not the right place.

I noticed a strange behaviour when updating meta information in bulk.
I had a list of books that had the title in the author field so I decided to mark the "swap title and author" box. Because all the books were of 1 author, I also filled in the author field. Instead of first switching the titles and than setting the author, it first set the author, so all my books had the author as title now.

It is not a really big problem of course. I just want to report it so it is a known issue as I didn't find at back somewhere else.

Well it has to do one or the other and changing the order will cause problems with other sequences. Best to always do one operation at a time when bulk editing. Or test your technique ona couple of books first.
