Bug Description

I selected a dozen files to change, selected Edit Metadata in Bulk:
Selected the Author_sort field : Current value "Nora Roberts"
Entered replace with value of: "Nora Roberts - JD Robb"
Test results equals "Nora Roberts - JD RobbvNora Roberts - JD RobbcNora Roberts - JD RobbvNora Roberts - JD RobbsNora Roberts - JD RobbdNora Roberts - JD Robb"
upon saving it replaces the the author_sort field with "Nora Roberts - JD RobbvNora Roberts - JD RobbcNora Roberts - JD RobbvNora Roberts - JD RobbsNora Roberts - JD RobbdNora Roberts - JD Robb"

values copied from the Edit Information screen
I've tried this on several sets of files, turned Calibre off and back on
Current version 1.24

You need to enter something in the "Search For" field. For example, .* (in
regular expression mode) will replace the entire field.
