Occasionally I'll have a problem renaming docs. Unfortunately, I can't reproduce it right now. But I will select the doc from the list, and then either select it again, or hit enter. Both actions result in the document name being highlighted, ready for editing. And they are both working fine right now.

But sometimes, I'll start typing the new name, and it won't let me finish. The partially renamed doc will then jump to another place in my list, since I sort by name. Does anyone what I'm doing wrong?
