Description Stuart Barlow 2018-04-11 13:46:26 UTC
I see unusual behaviour when opening tests via the JMeter GUI.

I often run multiple instances of the GUI on the same machine when executing smoke screen tests after a fresh deployment of the application I am testing.

If I open JMeter instances A and B and load tests A and B in that order. 
Then go to JMeter instance A and open the first entry from the Open Recent list. The first entry says 'Test A' but what appears in the GUI is actually Test B.

Until now I didn't pay much attention to what appears in the left pane. Eager to find new defects in the application I test, I would just 'open recent' and then hit the start button. Because of this behaviour, unbeknownst to me I had the same test running in parallel in a few different JMeter instances and my test data exhausted a lot faster than I expected! :)
