The Audacity project has a bug tracking system, but they prefer
problem reports via mail:
https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/audacity-devel

Although rewriting the tags with a different library (libid3 vs. taglib)
may work for you, it remains to be seen whether the resulting files are
more compatible with "the rest of the world" as tested by the Audacity
developers.
