Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

to replicate:

  1. Appearance -> Menus
  2. create a Menu (ex. "My Menu")
  3. add a Category as the first item in that Menu (ex. a category named "Learn")
  4. rename the Menu to something else (ex. "Main")
  5. Posts -> Categories
  6. the name of your Category ("Learn") is now the name of the Menu ("Main")
  7. rename the Category ("Learn")
  8. back to Appearance -> Menus
  9. the name of your Menu is now the name of your Category ("Learn")

this has been reported to happen with Tags as well, see that ticket: #16936

it is interesting to note that this does Not happen if the first item in your Menu is a Page.

i take that back... even when the first item is Not a category, the first Category wordpress does "find", gets renamed.
