Link Name Change for self referential note

I have a note which has a link inside it which points to its own title. If I change the title I end up with 2 notes. The original note is still there and another note with the new title but with the links pointing to the old title.

The software correctly updates other notes with the link.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create note with title eg AAA.
  2. Add link inside note to itself eg [[AAA]]
    3.Change the title to AAA Done.

Expected result

Single note with correct internal link to itself.

Actual result

  1. The internal link inside AAA Done still points to AAA.
  2. The original AAA note is still there with the correct links to AAA Done. So we have 2 notes.

Additional information

oh, boy!

I can’t seem to repro this. I get the correct behavior (note is renamed, no duplicates, link in note is updated).

Great, it appears that at somepoint you fixed this.
