Child category IDs reset when category is updated

When saving updates to a child category, the existing category ID is not retained but instead incremented to the next available ID. The ID selected is the next unused ID, not necessarily the next auto_increment value supplied by the database. Essentially, if an existing category is deleted and then a surviving child category is updated, it will receive the ID that was previously assigned to the deleted category.
