Unhappy Calibre removes itunesmetadata.plist after edit and save to disk

Hello,

I'm trying to add categories to ePubs by adding the <key> and <string> info in itunesmetadata.plist. However, when I save it and then save to disk, this whole part is gone. When I open the ePub again, the itunesmetadata.plist is gone from the Miscellaneous section.

Any suggestions please?

I cannot replicate this. Steps I tried:

1) Right click a book and select edit book
2) Click File->Add a new file
3) Chose the name as itunesmetadata.plist
4) Enter some dummy content into the file
5) Click save and then quit
5) Click save to disk
7) Open the saved epub in the editor
8) The itunesmetadata.plist file is stil present
