Default MIDI editor: Changing channel of bank/program select event causes duplication (FIXED)

In the MIDI editor, the "Edit: Event properties" action opens a window in which the user can change various properties of selected events. If notes are selected, the "Notes properties" window is opened, and if a Bank/Program Select event is selected, the "Bank/Program Select" window is opened.

In the "Bank/Program Select" window, everything works fine if I change the bank or program of a selected event. (These 'events' actually consist of a Bank Select CC + a Program Change event.)

However, if I try to change the event's *channel*, it inserts a new event instead of changing the selected event. I therefore end up with two Bank/Program Select events at the same PPQ position, one in the new channel, and one still in the old channel.

(There is a workaround, fortunately: Changing channels via the action "Edit: Set events to channel ..." correctly changes the channel of Bank/Program Select events.)

So your problem is essentially one of semantics. Welcome to Reaper!
I still after umpteen versions find myself falling into traps like this.
Mind you having also ventured into Sonar and Studio One territory they have just as many wtf moments when it comes to inventing their own names/terms for things

Oops, I did not intend to make the bug report sound like an issue of semantics or terminology. Perhaps I gave too much background info.

The bug is actually very simple:

The Properties windows** are supposed to change the properties of selected events - not insert new events.

However, if the user tries to change the channel of bank/program select events, the Properties window inserts a new event. The user therefore ends up with two events: one in the new (correct) channel, and another in the old (wrong) channel.

** Depending on the selected events, these windows are titled "Notes Properties", "Event Properties" or "Bank/Program Select".
