iTunes 11: "Part of a compilation" NOT WORKING

I've had this problem with a few versions of itunes now. I hoped they would have fixed the problem in iTunes 11. Basically, when I try to import a compilation album, in about 40% of the cases I cannot convince iTunes that all these songs bellong to the same album. It either creates a seperate album for every song (which is really not practical when you import a Top 100...) or makes it impossible to merge multi-CD albums.
Has anyone encoutered a similar problem? Is it fixable?

(I've tried reseting and importing again my entire music library in the previous version of iTunes and it didn't work...)

An alternative is to set each song's artist in the Artist field, put "Various Artists" in the Album Artist field for all tracks, and make sure the Album name matches on all tracks.
