A particular code in ID3v1 can mean something else in ID3v2, but that is not what I'm talking about.

I'll try explaining in a different way.

Say you have a blues song and you set the ID3v1 and ID3v2 genre tags to 'Blues' on the ID3v1 and ID3v2 tabs (using the selection lists on the respective tabs) in the Alt+3 editor and save the file. Then you do the same thing with a rock song, set the v1 and v2 genre tags to 'Rock' on the v1 and v2 tabs in the Alt+3 editor and save the file. Now go back and view the tags for the blues song. When you click on the v1 tab, you should see 'Blues' as the genre, but instead you see 'Rock'.
