Bug Description

>The calibre version

v 1.0

>The operating system you are running calibre on



If you try to rename a tag in sidebar (right clicking on a tag and selecting "Rename …", for example, "Historical Fiction" and try to split it in two tags to simplify, for example "Historical" and "Fiction", by adding a "," this does not work anymore.

In v1, the tag shows up as "Historical, Fiction" and if you edit metadata of a book with that tag and just click OK, the tag will split into "HIstorical" and "Fiction" and "Historical, Fiction" will disappear from tags.

For years, calibre allowed tag renaming & splitting from the sidebar and something broke in v1. Now it doesn't split them anymore and causes unintended consequences once you edit metadata.

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every Friday.
