[F] Tag mapping doesn't work for APEv2

Mp3tag v. 2.45b.

Steps to reproduce the bug:

  1. Go to Options - Tag - Mapping. Create new mapping: Tag - "APEv2", Source - "Album Artist", Target - "BAND".
  2. Select .ape file, verify that tags in it are indeed APEv2 (look at the properties).
  3. Add "BAND" tag to the file (either via "Extended tags..." or via custom field in Tag Panel).
  4. Look inside the contents of the *.ape file (or open it in another program capable of reading tags) - there is "BAND" tag and no "Album Artist" tag in the file.

No other mappings for APEv2 work either. At the same time, similar mappings for VorbisComment and MP4 work perfectly.

P.S. Help page for tag mappings is misleading, It says: "provide a Source name (Mp3tag's internal name) and a target name (your preferred field name)". In reality, it works the opposite way - Source should be the name of the field actually written to/read from file, and Target - the name of the field in Mp3tag's interface. At least, that's how it works for me with VorbisComment and MP4 tags.

This is now fixed with Mp3tag v2.45c.
