Group By has an item with a blank label, it should be labeled "Title"

Platform:
Linux Fedora Core 4
gcstar 1.1.1 generic rpm
Updates installed.

Area:
Main Display, Group By

Summary:
The Group By button in the main display has a selection
with an empty label.  This seems to be the default Group
By selection.  (I did not notice this until I added a new
collection as my gcfilms settings were imported upon
first run, which included my default group by being set
to serie.)

This empty label seems to group list items by the main
title of the item, so the label should probably read "Title".

Re: Group By has an item with a blank label, it should be labeled "Title"

The empty value corresponds to "no grouping". Maybe it should have a label more explicit then, such as "Don't group". For me, it was obvious that no field to use for grouping means the user doesn't want to be group. But maybe it isn't. Let me know your opinion about this.

"Title" has been removed from this list because it's not useful to group using this field.

I have never been a fan of blank labels.  My preference would
be to have some word there.  "No Grouping" sounds as good
as anything else.
