I have a term set defined as part of managed metadata which is linked to Enterprise Keywords as best as I can tell. It's set up as a folksonomy so that users can tag documents with multiple keywords. Upon using a new tag, they show up in the term store just under Keywords, but then I move them to my managed term set. This part seems to work fine. However, when I change the name of a file, all the enterprise keywords for that item get erased. I can look at the version history of the file and see that the keywords were there and get removed. The same thing happens when I change other custom properties for the item (have done with a custom managed metadata column as well as simple text based columns). When editing file properties in grid view, the keywords appear to still be there when changing the custom property, but when I exit grid view, they then disappear. If instead (in grid view) I change the custom property and then reassign the keywords by, say, copying them from another file with the same keywords, then when exiting grid view the keywords remain, so it appears to happen immediately upon making the first change, even if visually they aren't removed until I exit grid view. When editing properties through the details pane, the keywords disappear visually as soon as any property change is saved. This seems like a major bug but perhaps there's something wrong in my setup which is causing it. I can't expect general users to be conscious of this issue so unless it's fixed I imagine I will have keywords disappearing left and right once users start accessing the site.
