Here's a step-by-step guide to illustrate this - easier than trying to describe it first.
- Save a session with name a11.subnet1.example.com - doesn't matter what options you have selected.
- Save a session with name z99.some-other.domain.name.com.
- Now, let's say we want to save another session with almost identical settings as for a11, so at the WinSCP Login dialogue, highlight the a11 session, click Edit, then click Save. You get the Save session as dialogue. We want to call this new session z11.subnet1.example.com. So, in the name field, highlight the letter 'a' and overtype it with 'z'. Dang!, the field contents are changed to z99.some-other.domain.name.com.
- The easy workaround is, when the Save session as dialogue comes up, don't highlight and overtype the 'a', just move the cursor to the start of the field, type the 'z' and then remove the 'a'. (Told you it was only a slight annoyance!)
Seeing this with WinSCP 4.0.7.
