Duplicate materials in Sheet Metal Rule styles

So I'm in the midst of redoing my Sheet Metal Rules, and custom materials, since the update to 2013 kind of destroyed that.  I created a new material library, to house all of my custom Materials in.  I set it to be the only Material Library in the project, so now when I open up a file in that project, I only see my Custom material list, and that works fine when I go into the iProperties as well, the material list shows up correctly.

 

But when I go into the Styles Editor, and go to add my new custom Materials to my Sheet Metal Rules, the list of materials is shown in duplicate.  I have attached a couple of screenshots of me opening the iProperties, and the Sheet Metal Rules in the same file.

 

If I open up the material editor, everything is only listed once.  Am I missing something, or is this a bug?

 

 

Just to let you know that I confirm the problem with the Sheet Metal materials being duplicated and I have logged the issue with development.

Jon.

So I have an update already.

 

Right after I posted, I went ahead and started assigning the first instance of the material to the appropriate Sheet Metal Rule.  As I did that though, I noticed that each time I saved the sheet metal rule with a new Material, it would add more duplicates.  I am up to several dozen duplicate materials in my list now, not just the two like the previous image.

 

And now, I have assigned a material to probably about a dozen or so Sheet Metal Rules, and it isn't allow me to save any of the other sheet metal rules I need to update.  I'll keep looking into this, but it seems connected to the other problem I am having.

 

Any insight would be great, as this is quickly becomming a pain.  Not only did this updated Material/Appearance make me lose my old materials, and cause error messages to pop up every time I open an old file using my old material, it doesn't seem to be working correctly.

I will have a look at this issue and if I can reproduce, then I will log the issue with development.

I will let you know.
