Problems editing ID3v1 tag

I have a few MP3 files for which it appears to be impossible to edit the ID3v1 tag. I can put anything in the track title field in Winamp (I'm using v 2.81), but the playlist and track info scrolling field will still show the same erroneous title. The strange thing is that the correct data is shown if I open the file info edit window.

If I remove the tag completely (I've tried this both with the tag editor, ID3-TagIT, and Winamp) the filename is displayed as it should in the playlist, but once I put something in the tag, that same track title is displaying once again. The only way of solving the problem seems to be to add a ID3v2 tag, since the ID3v2 title will have priority over the ID3v1 info, but I don't want to use that tag format...

The only reason to this I can think of is that the ID3v1 tag is created with some other utility which does not comply with the ID3v1 standard. Anyone got any suggestions as to how I could remove that tag?
