Default Renaming 5.1 Audio files - nasty bug!!

This relates to 7.1 cs5 - and has been fixed in subsequent releases - but for anyone still using this version beware...

If you re-name a 5.1 file in the track (grab tool, double click) - the channel extenders (.l, .r, .c etc) will be wrong on the individual files after the rename. You may not spot this if you keep the files in their 5.1 tracks, or import those tracks into another session. However - if you drag the 5.1 files from the region list, or import the files into a 5.1 track - they will be in the wrong order!

This very nearly caused us a disaster today, narrowly averted by an eagle eyed assistant.
