[1.5.4] ITUNESCOMPILATION tag introduces "Various Artists" album artist

I'm not sure when foobar2000 behavior changed, but if an m4a file has the ITUNESCOMPILATION tag present, then foobar2000 will force the album artist to be "Various Artists".  This occurs regardless of whether the ITUNESCOMPILATION field value is set to "0" or "1".  Is this intentional?  This change has reset hundreds of my files' Playback Statistics added date because they weren't supposed to be "Various Artists" albums.

I'm pretty sure this bug is back.  Currently trying 1.6.8 beta 2.

If ITUNESCOMPILATION is 0, foobar2000 says ALBUM ARTIST is "Various Artists".  If I try to delete "Various Artists" from ALBUM ARTIST and save the files, then the album artist still remains Various Artists.
