Bug Description

When adding a book, if author_sort in Manage Authors has a custom value, this value is ignored.

This bug exists in all versions since 4.12, on MacOS Catalina 10.15.5.

For example, I add a book by "Eastern Sword". In Manage Authors, I change the author_sort value from "Sword, Eastern" to "Eastern Sword". In future whenever I add a book by this author, that author_sort value "Eastern Sword" should be applied automatically. But it isn't. The newly added book has author_sort value "Sword, Eastern", ignoring the value "Eastern Sword" in Manage Authors author_sort.

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