Stop appending directory name to session tab

I recently upgraded my WinSCP (to v. 5.17.1) after using an old version for a long time. One of the new changes appears to be naming of session tabs - instead of appending a number in brackets to each session tab from the same site, WinSCP now appends the name of the directory open in the tab.

I can see the appeal of this, however, a lot of the directories I work with have really long names and this quickly takes up the space at the top of the window. I could not find a workaround in the settings (please let me know if there is one!) so instead, I went about renaming my session tabs by right clicking on them and choosing 'Rename Session'. This actually worked ok except now when I load a saved workplace with renamed tabs, WinSCP asks me for a password each time I reconnect to a renamed tab, even though I have my passwords saved. It does not ask me for a password if I reconnect to a tab that has not been renamed.

Can anyone please help me? Is there a way to stop WinSCP appending the directory name to the session tab? And if not, is there a way to get WinSCP to stop asking me for a password when reconnecting to a renamed tab (i.e. like when trying to load a saved workplace). Thank you for your help!

Re: Stop appending directory name to session tab

Sorry for my late answer. I took me while before I got time to try to reproduce the problem with passwords. But I did not succeed. Can you provide us step-by-step instructions for reproducing the problem?

Dump of workspace registry entries might help too.
