Bug Description

Using Calibre 1.5 (Windows 7 Enterprise version:6.1.7601 servicePack:1)

The Title Sort field doesn't seem to be recognized by CalibreDB for any function other than "catalog". When I try to do a list:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Calibre2\CalibreDB.exe" list -f "author_sort,authors,cover,formats,identifiers,last_modified,pubdate,publisher,rating,series,series_index,size,tags,timestamp,title_sort,title,uuid"

the title_sort field isn't recognized. Also, when I try to update a book:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Calibre2\CalibreDB.exe" set_metadata 160 -f "title_sort:My New Title", I receive the error:
"title_sort is not a known field"

Without the ability to update the Title Sort field, the ability to update the Title is not very helpful -- because very quickly the two columns become out of sync.

The author_sort field IS recognized. Please update Calibre to recognize the title_sort field.

Thank you for all your work on this GREAT program!

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