1. I created 2 new issues as improvement.
2. I changed type of first issue from improvement to epic.
3. When I try to assign a second task to the first one as epic, I get following epic name: unlabelled-SRD-4291
Where SRD-4291 is the ID of first task. Is there a way to convert existing issue to the epic with ability to properly shown it's name?

I attached 2 screenshots. On the first you can see weird epic link. On the second you can see epic per se.
