Description

take this layer

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/qgis/QGIS/d0faca16a7e63e8bb0e9382c1b7746e1dfc67e2e/python/plugins/processing/tests/testdata/polys.gml

and add it with the "add vector layer" dialog, or by QGIS browser, or by D&D from a system window.

In QGIS 2.16.2 by "add vector" layer or D&D you get as layer name

polys polys2 Polygon

that seems very strange. By using the browser you get

polys

that seems ok

On the other hand on older QGIS releases (2.8.8) you always get the same name, but that is different from the above ones...

polys2
