Summary0015576: Renaming title of artist/album after selecting it from Wrong artist/album menu should be optional
DescriptionCurrently MM5 automatically renames artist/album, when user selects different from Wrong artist/album menu. It is not always desirable. We should add possibility to switch off this renaming, e.g. by "'Also rename Library Artist/Album" option in Wrong artist/album popup menu. This setting should persist.

Tested 2168. I would just suggest a change in strings to a single generic string (hopefully one that we already use elsewhere). e.g.:

Also rename Library Artist --> Update tracks
Also rename Library Album --> Update tracks

Note: Michal indicated:
I think, "Update tracks" could be misleading. Tracks (files) are updated only in case "Update tags when editing properties" is switched on in Options - Tags & Playlists. This issue was about automatic renaming artist/album in library.
E.g. you have artist "Kylie", open artist page, select wrong artists - "Kylie Minogue". And there are 3 possibilities:
1) only assign MusicBrainz ID from selected Kylie Minogue to your artist Kylie
2) do 1) and rename Kylie to Kylie Minogue in MM DB.
3) do 2) and tag all relevant files by new artist
Setting in this issue affect, whether the artist in MM DB should be renamed, but not, whether the change should be also written to files, it is determined by the other option. Only if both are on,

I think it's a valid point, but by the same token, MM uses terminology throughout that implies DB and tracks are updated when changes are made. e.g. 'Auto-tag', 'File Properties', 'Rename', etc.
Additionally, I think that 'Update tracks' is clearer since 'Also rename Library Artist' doesn't clearly communicate that the metadata for associated tracks will be updated.

An alternative could be 'Update database', but I think that 'Update tracks' is more consistent with the rest of the UI.
