[OS X TeX] Crossrefs and BibDesk

The recent addition of cross-reference functionality in BibDesk got  
me interested in learning how to use cross-references.  I am having  
some trouble and can't tell if the problem is my own ignorance or a  
small bug in BibDesk.

I wish to refer to separate chapters of an edited volume.  Each  
chapter has its own title and authors.  My reading of Kopka & Daly  
(3rd ed) led me to think that I should thus use the "book" type for  
the parent record and the "incollection" type for the child records.   
What I find is that BibDesk pulls the "Title" field from the parent  
record and puts it in the "Title" field of the child record, but I  
think it should go to the "Booktitle" field.  Am I correct?
