libprs500 - title/author matching regex

I've just started playing with libprs500 (0.4.46) in preperation for a Sony PRS505 I have on the way and I'm having a spot of bother trying to get the standard regex to correctly identify the author and title from the filename.

The standard syntax I believe is: (?P<author>.+) - (?P<title>[^_]+)

Which, if in the test box, I paste in the following string "H.P Lovecraft - At the Mountains of Madness.txt" correctly reports the following:

Title: "At the Mountains of Madness"
Author: "H.P. Lovecraft"
Series: "No Match"
Series Index: "No Match"

However, actually importing that same file into the library displays the following:

Title: "H.P. Lovecraft - At the Mountains of Madness"
Author: "H.P. Lovecraft"
(all other columns are blank as expected)

Is this standard behaviour or a bug?
