I have composition display switched on for all genres, not just Classical. In this Depeche Mode box-set the lyricist is being munged with the publisher. It is for all tracks on the 18 disk box-set
I am noticing other things with composition handling. Probably just my imagination but there seems to be more duplicate composers. It’s been mentioned that database / metadata changes have already been made prior to the 1.8 GUI drop. Not related I hope, just coincidence? From the 1.8 preview screen shots composition / composer is being brought more center stage.
