%title% is not correctly recognized in ATF (Test case inside)

You can reproduce the issue with this test case:

[1] Move to Options->Preferences->Titles

[2] Enable Advanced Title Formatting (ATF)

[3] BACKUP your original string in case one is there (!)

[4] REPLACE it with the following (silly) string:

$if(%artist%,Artist exists,Artist doesn''t exist) - $if(%title%,Title exists,Title doesn''t exist)

[5] CLOSE the Options window.

[6] Use my MP3, done with Windows Audiorecorder, then LAME-encoded to ensure that at least the header is 100% OK. (14k size zipped - http://*******.com/3pha4 - right click+'save as...' )

[7] Play the MP3.
You will see: "Artist doesn't exist - Title exists".

[8] Edit the MP3: Enable both ID3v1 and ID3v2 and type something in as artist, e. g. 'x'.

[9] Play the MP3 again.
You will see: "Artist exists - Title exists".

[10] Delete the artist string again and disable both ID3 fields.

[11] Play the MP3 one last time.
You will see: "Artist doesn't exist - Title exists".

That is a clear proof that no matter whether Title is set or not, it will always be recognized as existing and not toggle on/off like Artist, which works instead: if you delete Artist, it is recognized as invalid, if you add it, it's recognized as valid again.
This should also work the same way with the Title, but does not. I consider this a bug.
