Renaming queries in 163.5 while the editor window is open, means mfd_meta retains latest unsaved* edits in 'Text' property with old [Name] and uses last saved edits for 'Text' new [Name].

1. mfd_meta has property for component not in found mfd_root

2. Unsaved edits are lost**

* "saving" happens when query is run or window closed, or map file saved.

** lost if not counting renaming query back to old name or recovering the text value from mfd_meta.

I have sent reports of the same bug over several years. (One is here. Another.)

It applies to all text-based components.

It’s excruciating. Not acceptable for production code.
