    This problem still exists if the InputAction is inside a serialized non-monobehaviour class.
    For example:

    public class MyScript : MonoBehaviour
    [SerializeField] private InputAction actionWithWorkingName; //This works
    [SerializeField] private MyInputClass nonMonobehaviour; //This doesnt work

    public class MyInputClass
    [SerializeField] private InputAction brokenName; //This just shows as "InputAction"
