Note that the “Movie Description” fix is actually a reversion to pre-4.2 behaviour of only using the standard “short” description field.  This will actually help users who encode their own videos and haven’t been using the “Long Description” field, but is actually a step backward for those of us who are using this field, including those purchasing content from the iTunes Store (much of which sadly includes an oddly-truncated standard description field).
