Preferring the longest tag values when tags do not match is a feature, not a bug. It keeps regular users from having to deal with truncated tag values.

In cases where you are storing latin tags in one tag type and kanji tags in another, the solution is to STOP DOING THAT. That is simply not what the different tag types are designed to do, and using them as such is poor practice. You could easily store your Latin based fields in user defined id3v2 fields named artist_LN, album_LN, title_LN so on and so forth.
