Fields changed through Windows Explorer break fields added through FB

(sorry in advance if it has already been reported - couldn't find it)

To reproduce a bug:
1. In FB, open Properties of selected track
2. Select Tools -> Add new field...
3. Add custom-named field and its value, press OK
4. Open standard Windows system dialog of the file properties (through Alt+Enter or right click -> Properties), open Details tab
5. Change any of the properties, for example, [Album artist], press OK
6. Reload info in FB - previously added field value is changed!

It's obviously a bug but I'm not sure if it's a bug of FB or Windows

You're right, thank you!
So, it's a Windows bug that was reported since at least 2009 - but Microsoft doesn't care to fix it.

Microsoft considers it a feature.

They fixed it, by disabling writing tags to files by default.
