When I geotag photos in Map module the program fills the name of the place: Country, Province, City and sometimes even Sublocation. So far so good.However, when I switch to Library module the location fields in Metadata's IPTC are still blank. Or sometimes they even have data from a different photo!It only happens when only IPTC option is chosen in Metadata panel. If I choose "EXIF and IPTC" the problem is gone.I think this is a bug.I use LR 4.1 on Mac.

This was fixed on Lightroom 5 or later.
