[Kobo] Send to device creating blank series (for items without series)

I have a Kobo Libra 2 that I've started using with Calibre. I've gone through and cleaned up the metadata for ebooks I have (a bunch of free and cheap things obtained from Google Play), and started transferring to my Kobo. However, for items without a series set, they are still showing with a blank series in the Kobo list - this wasn't the case before I was using Calibre (when I was just loading from Adobe Digital Editions, but the inconsistencies in the metadata was driving me crazy).

So previously I would have had:

The Anthology of Scottish Folk Tales
Donald Smith

Now I get

The Anthology of Scottish Folk Tales (, #)
Donald Smith

I've tried turning off the option in the KoboTouch and KoboTouchExtended plugins for loading Series information (even though I kind of want that where books do have a series). I'm assuming I'm just doing something really obvious wrong, but I've looked around at the options I think are relevant and tried searching the forums, hence my now posting.

Ah! I was playing about with plugboards in some of my earlier experimentations and setup one that would append series and series number to the end of titles. I thought I had deleted it, but I just remembered and sure enough, removing that solves my problem.

See I knew it was something obvious.

I was going reply suggesting that you check yoiur plugboards but then read your second message.

Can anyone honestly say that they have never had a Doh! moment?
