    biblatex "shorttitle" fields do not seem to be converted properly:

        Author = {Author, Al},
        Date = {2013},
        Hyphenation = {english},
        Location = {Location},
        Publisher = {Publisher},
        Shorttitle = {Shorttitle},
        Subtitle = {Subtitle},
        Title = {Title}}

    is converted to MODS not containing any shorttitle information. Instead, the following error messages are displayed:

    biblatex2xml: Reference 1 has unused tags.
        Author(s) (level=0):
        Title(s) (level=0):
        Unused tags:
            tag: 'SHORTITLE' value: 'Shorttitle' level: 0
    biblatex2xml: Processed 1 references.

    Note the spelling of 'SHORTITLE' ...

    It turns out that this bug is caused by a simple typo in bltypes.c. Fix: replace all SHORTITLE by SHORTTITLE.
