Rename USB thumb drive effects New Folder Creation

Steps to repo:
1 - Insert a USB thumb drive.
2 - Select the drive in Pathfinder and under the commands menu choose rename.
3 - After naming the USB drive go to a folder on a hard drive
4 - Create New Folder and give it a name

What happens:
Path Finder lets you create a folder name, but then prompts you to rename your thumb drive. If you change the name it will rename the thumb drive.

What was expected:
Path Finder should not be asking to rename USB removable media when creating new folders with new names elsewhere on your Mac.

Tested with Path Finder 8.3.9 (1928)
