Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: k3b

I started an audio CD project, added some wav files, and manually filled
in the titles in the "Titles (CD text)" column. Then I clicked Burn, and
went to the CD text tab. There were two text input boxes, labelled
"Title" and "Performer", along with two small buttons whose icons did
not make it obvious what they do (screenshot attached). I clicked the
one next to "Title", and nothing seemed to happen. I waited for the
tooltip, which said "copy to all tracks". I realised that K3B had erased
all the titles (by overwriting them with the contents of the "Title"
text input in the screenshot attached, which was blank) of individual
tracks that I had filled in by hand.

K3B should not erase data without warning. The Burn dialog box may cover
the Title column in the main K3B window, and users may not even realise
what has happened.

K3B 1.0.4, using KDE 3.5.9, on Kubuntu 8.04.
