Summary0005196: All spawnargs with the same value as the "name" spawnarg iterate when the entity is cloned
DescriptionIf any spawnargs have the same value as the "name" spawnarg, they too get iterated each time the entity is cloned. For example:

"classname" "func_static"
"name" "func_static"
"test_spawnarg" "func_static"


"classname" "func_static1"
"name" "func_static1"
"test_spawnarg" "func_static1"
Steps To Reproduce1) Create model -> stagecoach
2) Set the following spawnargs on the stagecoach:
"classname" "func_static"
"name" "func_static"
"test_spawnarg" "func_static"
3) Hit space to clone the stagecoach. All 3 of the above spawnargs have changed their value to "func_static1"
TagsNo tags attached.

That's an actual feature. There are a number of spawnargs that refer to an entity's name, like target and S/R spawnargs. When cloning a couple of objects, the intention of that code is to keep the links intact.

Ah, I can see how that's very useful - but I think some of the spawnargs should remain unchanged: especially "classname" and any spawnargs like "def_attach" that reference classnames, as what they're referring to is defined outside of the .map and therefore unaffected by cloning.

Details Diff
Fix 0005196: The "classname" key and keys starting with "def_" won't monitor their values for name changes. This prevents particular entity setups where the "classname" is the same as the entity's "name" triggers a classname change when cloning. Affected Issues
