Save As (Rename) does not update displayed name in Feature Manager

Solidworks 2011 SP3.0

 

When in an assembly and I do a "Save As" to rename a Part or Assembly and I do NOT check the "Save as copy" check box, the name displayed in the feature manager does not update.

 

Example:

Assembly "A" has Sub-Assembly "C-TEMP.SLDASM". I do a "Save As" and save "C-TEMP.SLDASM" as "A-A.SLDASM", Although the "reference" inside solidworks correctly relates to the new file (i.e. "A-A.SLDASM") the name displayed in the feature manager remains as "C-TEMP" (instead of "A-A"). Even if I exit solidworks and return the feature manager never updates.

 

Any idea how to correct this?
