Summary0001649: Chaning names on Pads does not change them everywere
DescriptionIf I rename an object the new name is not used for any objects referencing this object. The default name is used. For example if you perform a polar pattern feature on a pad, the name that appears in the field "Original feature" is the default name (such as "PadXXX"). This bug leads to confusion, especially for projects with many features.

This bug might be part of the Topological naming interface group (Issue #0000876).
Steps To ReproduceAttached a file to show the bug.
1. Select the feature "Toothpad" (original name Pad001).
2. Choose Polar pattern feature.
3. The name in the field "original feature" is "Pad001" instead of "Toothpad".

You can't rename an Object. You can only change the Label.
Maybe we should show the Label in the original field data. (and offer the real name as a tooltip)

Actually, throughout the GUI the Label should be used. For a normal user the internal name is of no interest. It's only interesting for Python coders and therefore we write the internal name of the object in the status bar when (pre-)selecting it.
