    Not just you...

    I've seen this issue myself. It's happened a few times on my 2010 Mac Pro. Also running Lion 10.7.4, and it seems to have started fairly recently -- perhaps even coinciding with 10.7.4, but not really sure.

    I've seen other threads on this, and one user even suggested it may have been related to turning on CD/DVD Sharing, which I had also done recently. No real evidence on this though.

    I've been renaming it back manually, and it hasn't been a huge problem for me, but it is certainly annoying.

    My 2010 mac Pro does this all the time, very annoying because it confuses the other computers connected to the network. A solution would be welcome. If the solution's name is Mountain Lion that's even better.

    well thx for chiming in, this seems to need a genuine help desk ticket at apple to address it, as widespread across different hardware models.

    My 2008 MacBook does this, too. Hadn't seen it before 10.7.4. It's VERY annoying...

    It's up to name 116!
    What sort of Mac OS X data accounting error is going on here??
