PDF: Homescreen shows Filename instead of Title (Metadata)

Hi,

did anyone notice, that on the Kindle Homescreen, PDFs are listed with
Title = Filename (without extension .pdf)
Author = Author as in Metadata

Knobbing right brings the info about the PDF, and there it displays the Title correct as in the Metadata.

You can see in the attached screen the metadata-title (with double point :)
and below the filename (with dash -)

Just wondering if this is a glitch in FW 2.5.6?

It's not a 2.5.6 issue. That's the way PDFs have always been displayed on Kindle. I'm not sure if it's a feature or a failing.
