Mindmanager "forgets" central topic name when saving a file with "Show file names in workbook tabs" enabled

When saving a mindmap for the first time, Mindmanager suggests a file name in the format <central topic text>.mmap. However, when a user selects the option "File | Options | View | Show | File names in workbook tabs", Mindmanager suggests a file name in the format Map<n>.mmap. This seems like an inconsistent behavior and a bug to me. It certainly is unexpected behavior that surprised me.
In my case, I turned on the option because I wanted to compare two similar mindmaps with the same central topic name without getting confused which one was which. Then I forgot about it that I turned the option on. When I tried to save a new mindmap a few days later, I got the Map<n>.mmap suggestion and was very surprised. I didn't remember I changed the "Show file names in workbook tabs" option a few days before and I never would have guessed the behavior is related to any option I changed under the "View" options tab. Instead, I looked several times through all the options under the "Open & Save" options tab, but didn't find anything possibly related.
Please fix this problem so that Mindmanager suggests a file name with the central topic text in the name even with the "Show file names in workbook tabs" option enabled. If suggesting a filename of the format Map<n>.mmap is a desired behavior in some cases, make that a seperate option under "Open & Save | Save Options".
