Clementine - unable to edit the currently playing song

Running Clementine 1.3.1 on Fedora 25.

I am unable to edit the details of the currently playing song. The 'Edit metadata' box opens. I can make the changes but they are not stored. When the player advances to the next song, if I go back, I still see the old metadata.

What could the problem be? How do I set it right?

Maybe this information is cached and just not read from the actual media file every time you fetch the information. Have you tried closing and reopening Clementine? Same behavior?

@florian If I check 'Monitor library for changes' everything seems to work. I will add that as an answer

When 'Monitor library for changes' in Tools -> Preferences -> Music Library is selected, everything works as expected.
