The "File Rename" function during Export does not seem to work properly if the file being exported had previously been renamed within Lightroom. The file exports using the old filename instead of the new one. This happened when I wanted to add an extension to the existing filename during Export.

This is actually an addition to my entry above. If you have this problem with the catalog not recognizing a changed filename, i found that if you remove the file from the catalog and reimport it, it updates the catalog's database (at least for this situation). It's kinda "clunky" but it appears to be a work-around for an integrity issue. There's probably a simpler fix, but i haven't found it yet. As a new Lightroom user i must admit that my confidence in the product is a bit undermined.
