KAudioCreator writes wrong ID3 Tags

Hi all,
after using KAudioCreator for a while very successfully, it now have a funny behaviour:
The tracks are ripped fine, the CDDB returns the right strings, even the directoy and filenames are quite good, but the ID3 tags in the MP3 files are wrong :-(
The KAudioCreator seems to not expand the parameter "%{...}" to the write value, so the content of the MP3 tag title is now "%{title}", but what I want is something like "Smoke on the water"

The complete lame command-line is the following in the configuration:
lame -vbr --tt %{title} --ta %{albumartist} --tl %{albumtitle} --ty %{year} --tn %{number} --tg %{genre} %f %o

The KAudioCreator version is mentioned in the about-box as "1.0 (Using KDE 3.2.1)" and in the YaST "3.2.1-43" from the kdemultimedia3-CD RPM
I was not able to upgrade to 3.3.2 or 3.4 because it would need to upgrade the whole KDE, what I basically don't want to...

Do anybody know why KAudioCreator is not expanding the variable to set the correct ID3 tags?

Thanks in advance
