Description (partial)

If changing a firewall object (e.g. IP address order FQDN) in the ASDM rules section and the next rule contains a multiline description, the first lines of the description are "transferred" into the description field of the changed object.
So if the next firewall rule contains multiple description lines (line a, b, c,d), lines ab and b are placed into the description field of the rule above.
Screenshots are attached to demonstrate the issue.

ASA 9.8.4 with ASDM 7.12.2
