Use "Composer Sort" tags much like you would use "Artist Sort", at least
for the file(s) that are causing you problems.  I forgot that there can
be cross-over issues with names and sort fields; I think it's because
LMS can (and may be set in your case) to blend Composers and Artists
into one menu when browsing by Artist.  I don't include Composers in
that menu, but I think the indexing and sorting could still be affected.
Regardless, a "Composer Sort" tag can fix things (or ruin things if it
is not set right).  Usually adding a or tag or removing one that is
fowling things up will solve things. Occasionally, I have to wipe and
rescan the database when these issues occur.
