Metadata not showing in File/properties

I'm using LR 2.7 with Win7, and have "auto write changes to XMP" enabled. I'm trying to enter title and caption info so that when I send the file to a non-LR user they can see both the title and caption in the file properties. If I enter only a title, and then right click/show in explorer, and then right click/properties/details, the title shows in the Title field. If I input ONLY a caption it shows up in the Title field in file/properties. If I input BOTH a title and a caption in LR, ONLY the titles shows up in file properties. Why do not both title and caption show up in file/properties? What can I do so that recipients of the file can see all the metadata. Do I need to do something different to get them both to show up?

Its probably the way Explorer works and nothing to do with the xmp data. Do other programs show both ?
