Category renaming fails: bug?

In v.7.4, start a new reference, click on a category (it gets added to the reference), press F2 to rename, type new name, press enter and the program hangs. The only way out of it is to kill it from Windows.

Same when now reference is open.

Same in Open Category window.

The category's name is Reference: encyclopaedic - just in case this might be the reason.

Still problem with using ":" in categories

Paul,
There still seems to be a problem in the most recent patch to Bib8 using ":" in the name of categories. For example:
name a category "Ricoeur" and then name a child category (or even another category) "Ricoeur: metaphor".
Link some references to "Ricoeur: metaphor" but not "Ricoeur".
Both categories will show the references linked to "Ricoeur: metaphor" and give the same "count".
Rename that second category "Ricoeur on metaphor" and it fixes the problem. "Ricoeur" will show no references and "Ricoeur on metaphor" will show the references that have been marked.

Please name the child

Please name the child category as "Ricoeur : metaphor" instead of "Ricoeur: metaphor".

That works.

Thanks.
