DLNA server sending incorrect metadata for "Artist" and "Album Artist"

I just noticed what appears to be a long-standing bug in the track metadata sent by the Plex DLNA server. It seems to be sending "Album Artist" as "Artist" and not sending anything for "Album Artist". This results in less than useful rendering of compilation albums in UPnP control points.

Here's a compilation album (correctly) rendered in Linn Kazoo when served by MinimServer:

Here's the same album in Linn Kazoo when served by Plex:

Please can you fix the metadata sent by Plex so it renders correctly in UPnP control points?
