Album Synced to Various Artists Folder Incorrectly.
I have multiple albums that have more than one artist listed. However I am using the Album Artist tag to be sure that albums with multiple artists do not get split up on sync. This works quite well.
I have a few albums that I've found when synced to a USB device will get put into the various artists instead of under the correct album artists folder. Under the collection tab they are grouped correctly.
What causes this sync behavior, is there a way to disable this redirection to the Various Artists folder?
Below is the album, Mirror, that is exhibiting this behavior.
My sync Naming Options are;

What does a USB device mean? is it a filesystem device, or something like MTP?
If songs are copied to the same directory and have the same album title but different artists, this can happen, but not when album artist is set to the same artist.
In this case it is a FiiO X1, however Strawberry treats it like a USB drive. I see the same behavior on the USB drive I plug into my truck as well. I believe both are formatted as FAT32 since that is what both players prefer.
For this album, I guess I fixed this album by doing some minor corrections to the tags. However I did not touch the Album Artist tags as that was already populated as the same for all tracks on the album. I still see it on other albums.
I mostly want to figure out what triggers this and if there is a way to force strawberry to ignore this behavior and just follow the sync Naming Options.
