Steps To Reproduce
"testC" cutText ["This should not be visible on map screen", "PLAIN", 1, false];

And open map, compare to using number instead of string for layer.

On biki this is the alternate syntax 2
"named layers available with alternative syntax since Arma 3 v1.57.134673"

Can confirm the issue, an easy workaround (although one shouldn't be needed) for this issue is:

("testC" cutFadeOut 0) cutText ["This should not be visible on map screen", "PLAIN", 1, false];

or to call BIS_fnc_rscLayer on the rsc layer (which more or less does the same as the code above)
