Do you mean it switches to the "layout propeties"?
In that case it is not a bug it is a default function when you click on the layoutview to confirm the new name.
You can change the name and press "Enter" to confirm the new name without changing it to layout propeties.
Are you serious with this question?
If yes then:
I don't meant "layout properties", also If I would change the name and then click somewhere else I would put that into a bug description and steps to reproduce because that kind of thing could be crucial for fixing the bug.
This still happens in r204.2. For example renaming a Sprite from Properties panel works fine, but renaming it from Projects panel will switch from Sprite Properties to Project properties.
Don't be mean, I just thought you're a beginner or not aware of that function.
(Your profile shows that you are not, sorry...)
EDIT Also you are right about that, please add the details you commented to the "steps to reproduce". (Project Panel)
