Bug report #10998

KML name in layer tree is different than the KML added to map canvas

When opening a KML e.g. real_estate.kml once it is added to the layer tree it gets a generic name ~GE2E41.kmz, this is very annoying since it should capture the name of the selected KML and should read real_estate instead

This complicates matters once you add several KML layers.
