Menus: Menu item names change to numbers for added and edited menu items — at Initial Version

This was first noticed when bulk adding pages to an existing menu. Instead of the page title, the menu item uses a 15 digit number as its name and slug. This affected all attempts to add and edit menu items during a three hour session, whether by bulk or individually. Deleting and re-adding items did not help.

This happened on two sites. One a local MAMP install and the other on AWS. One was created from the other via export/import. The import was done days before the bug was seen. Both sites exhibited the problem during a Macnchrome session lasting a few hours.

The next day, the MAMP install no longer exhibited the bug. Existing items retained their numbers, but and edit flow started behaving properly. The AWS site still exhibits the problem.

I poked around the XHR request. The POST goes out fine. The response comes back with a number instead of the requested title. A quick peek in the DB at nav_menu_item post types revealed numbers instead of titles there too.
