I discovered that if you rename a connection by clicking "Manage Connections" tool then "Rename" button, and you change only the case of letters in the name, this generates an error "A connection named <new name> already exists".

For example, if you have a connection named "server" and you rename it to "Server" you get the error.

Related issue:

If you edit the connection and change the 'Connection name' field this creates a new connection entry, it does not rename the connection. This may be by design but doesn't seem to be consistant behavior.

Related feature requests:

- Consider right-click option to rename a connection similar to Windows Explorer functionality.

- Turn "Organize Favorites" into an actual "Connection Manager" where you can re-order, rename easily, add columns, sort by column heads, add a connect function.

- Multi-select tags showing a combined list of connections in the lower pane. Some way to negative-select i.e select "production" tag and unselect "Server 2003" tag to show non-server 2003 production servers. Maybe replace the <> tag symbol with a checkbox control?

Hope this helps... Our four man IT team use the hell out of Terminals since it kicks mstsc's ass. We love it!
