10.8.2 Fixture Name Bug

This has happened a few times to me in the past. I thought I should finally report it. This problem is difficult to explain as it only happens sometimes with the right conditions. When renaming a fixture the following happens:

It only happened when I changed the fixture "Hazer H Fan" to "Hazer High Fan".

As a workaround, try switching to blind and then back to live again.
Screen should be ok again.

Worse fixture name bug is when you have fixture names and then add and delete fixtures in patch. The names will end up on other channels!
