I just noticed it, but it seems to be 100% reproducible.

After my initial vetting, I seldom have a need to change anything. When I do, I have been using the Basic tab to enter changes, expecting them to transfer to the v1 and v2 tabs (and subsequently to the tags) correctly. I knew some things would change from v2 to v1, like '01' for a track # to '1' or a long album name would be truncated. If I made a genre change, I knew I had to do it on the v1 tab also (since v1 and v2 genre codes don't always match). I was not expecting tags that were not changed to be changed (which appears to only happen with the v1 genre tag).

My old player still works fine (and has a longer battery life than some of these newer players) and I have others. Its only issue is capacity. Anyway, I see no need to retire it because of a quirk in Winamp. Now that I'm aware of the issue, I can deal with it. But it should be fixed, if possible.
