Issue ID




[ScriptableObject] Name of child scriptable objects changes spontaneously



Steps to reproduce:

1. Open attached project
2. Delete "Repro Asset" scriptable object found in Assets folder
3. In top menu, click "Repro > Setup Repro Asset"
4. Once asset is created, expand it and notice that it has 3 children. Two named "Child Node" and one is named "Repro Asset"
5. On keyboard, click ctrl+s to save scene and once Save Scene window appears press cancel
6. Expand "Repro Asset" again ant notice that this time only one ScriptableObject is named "Child Node" and other two are named "Repro Asset"

Note: All children created in Step 4 should be named Child Node. Looks like one of them gets renamed instantly.

Regression introduced in: 5.3.3p1 (looks like 770926 introduced it)
Reproduced with: 5.4.0b8

Workaround: Name your main/containing asset's file something
alphabetically before all child assets

    This page claims "Status: Fixed in Unity 5.3.7" yet the problem persists in Unity 5.4.0f3...

    It say that it's fix in 5.3.7, does that mean we have to wait until that version for the fix ? The latest for now is 5.3.5f1

    Seriously, still no progress? Still occurs in 5.3.5f1, and yes, still makes project / data management nightmare. We've spend extra time to make editor scripts to counter this issue ( in data management wise )
