Default What kind of file is this?

I was retrying something I did yesterday. After rendering groups of tracks down to 3 stereo, I routed and recorded, not rendered those three down to another track. This works fine but I get a strange unrelated name for the new file. 12-070323_2143.wav

This is the type of name it gave me yesterday and I didn't think anything of it. I decided it was a bad mix and I wanted to off it. But when I went to clean the file directory and deleted it, crazy shit happened. That one file took itself, the last rendered track, which was replaced by a short section of the original looped all the way through the song and half the tracks that were muted also dropped from the screen. You can imagine how big my eyes got! When I reloaded the project the muted tracks reappeared but everything else was gone.

Now why is this action producing a file with such a weird name? And why did it do what it did? I wont be deleting the new one anytime soon.

You did not name the rendered file yourself and Reaper tacked its own name to it.

Do you have any idea why it caused such a chain of events or did I just stumble on a bug?
