Haiku gets confused with 2 volumes with the same name.

I have two partitions called "Haiku" I mounted both and changed the name of the second partition to "Empty" and rebooted immediately. After boot both partitions had been renamed empty.
I then proceeded to rename the first partition (boot) back to Haiku and rebooted. The partitions didn't change names (it reset to "Empty") and now the two partition icosn were overlapping which indicates that it also got confused when saving the partition attributes.
I tried yet again and renamed the second partition to "Test". After boot, again both partitions have been renamed "Test".
So it seems that (considering 2 BFS partitions, 1 the boot partition):
1 - Renaming the second partition also renames the boot one (only visible after rebooting). 2 - Renaming the boot partition has no effect and then position attributes on the second partition seeing to be copied to the first partition (also after boot).
This may or may not be related, but I noticed that working with files on the second partition affected files with the same path in the first partition which lead me to believe that there is a general confusion about Volume objects.
