Dear developers,

I add patch #23280 in the patch tracker:

When a new strip is added in the NLA panel the created unique name 
contain a random character instead of the expected "." before the 
suffix (3 digit number). I traced back this bug to


There sprintf() is used with a %c format specifier, but the argument 
is a string. Please find attached a patch to fix this problem. The 
patch do the following:

- use strrchr() instead of strchr() to cut off the suffix. strchr() 
may cut off to early when the name itself contain a ".". With 
strrchr() the last part after a "." (the suffix) is cut off

- directly use "." in sprintf() instead of %c and argument. The "." is 
fixed anyway, thus put it into the format string.
