Bug: network share (redirected folder) remains disconnected (error 0x8007048F) when reconnecting via Remote Desktop for Mac

I'm using Microsoft Remote Desktop for Mac with the "Redirect Folders" option to connect to Windows servers from my Apple MacBook. When the network connection has been interrupted, Remote Desktop asks me if I want to reconnect to the Windows server; when I choose to reconnect, the connection is reestablished but the name of the network share changed from "This PC >My Redirected Folder on Hostname" to something unreadable like "This PC > ::{XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX}" in the Explorer address bar. Probably the redirected folder is mapped to a different internal address. So I navigate away from this non-functional address back the network share "My Redirected Folder on Hostname". When I then try to copy a file into this network share, the operation fails with error code 0x8007048F. This does not happen each time after the network connection was interrupted, but quite frequently.
