Renaming a group chat on the mobile, changes conversation topic...



When in the mobile device, I open a group chat, press the "Rename Group" button and submit the name "Group Name", everything seems to be ok... but when I open the same group chat on the pc, I see the message '"DevNull" has changed the conversation topic to "Group Name"'...


This is not the intended beahviour... I only wanted to rename the group (for easier lookup/managment), not changing the conversation topic...

I'm having the same problem and am in a really large "community" Skype group where we use the topic for announcments and such. For the time being I've added a small note to the topic title to help me distinguish this group from others, but I'd really like to know how to change the "contact name" for this group for easier sorting and identification too, without having to change the group topic.
