Thanks for the fixes. So, you're the user "lstranger"?
Thanks a lot for helping the project.
When the whole filename contains English strings without digits or special chars, the collect key is totally the same as the file basename. So, I did the same trick for collate_key. That's why it's not copied unconditionally.
I need to recheck this part, though.
