Description

Creating a new unit in the editor will keep the description of the previous one, leading to mission bugs. This is really easy to reproduce.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Create a BLUEFOR riffleman. In the unit properties box, fill all the fields and put "MyDescription" in the DESCRIPTION FIELD.
  2. Create a second unit ... all the fields will be kept like the previous unit created, which is a nice feature. But the NAME and DESCRIPTION field should be empty. The name is empty, but you will notice that the DESCRIPTION is still the same as the previous one.
Additional Information

This can create confusion and bugs in the mission if the creator do not know about that bug. He ends up having multiple units having the same description.
