Can somebody confirm that after renaming a Member Group the inGroup method with the Group Title still checks on the old name?

I renamed a group from 'Dealer' to 'Retailer' in the Security Tab and
if( $member->inGroup('Retailer') )
returns false
if( $member->inGroup('Dealer') )
returns true

Seemed that in the Groups Table the Code field wasnt updated.

I updated it manually and then it works.
Feels like a Bug, doesnt it?

If it's a bug (or you think it is) best place is
You are unlikely to get a response from an SS dev here Edit but so you did from Willr!
