So pre-6.1.0 we didn't even try to sync the tree. Now that we do, it's trying to sync to the wrong treeSyncPath. The path gets set to the OLD path, before moving the template. But nobody is updating that to the new path. Since it has no idea what to do, it just closes the tree.

Not sure how to deal with that, returning it from SaveTemplate maybe? That now only returns true/false. Shannon?

This is an extremely frustrating issue, especially when you have a lot of templates but even on small sites it is a nuisance.

Would there not be some way to return the ID of the template and then find that ID in the template tree upon refresh? Or even the template's alias since that (should) be unique.

I'm sure it's an 'easy' fix, will look
