Driver File Path string fails to update when switching between two driver objects

C4DtoA 2.5.2.1
Arnold core 5.3.1.1

I'm on a bug finding spree today it seems.

1. New c4d scene.

2. Create two drivers. Name them '1' and '2' for simplicity.

3. Select driver object '1', notice how the default File Path parameter string is 'output.exr'.

4. Select driver object '2', type some gibberish text into the File Path string parameter.

5. Switch back to '1', notice how the parameter didn't update back to output.exr. It is showing the gibberish string of '2' despite '1' being currently selected.

If you didn't see this non-update happen then just keep switching between 1 and 2 and you should see the other string be always displayed instead probably.

I think I can reproduce the issue, at least something's odd is going on. Can you confirm it happens only when you switch between the two drivers? If you clear the selection and then select driver object '1', then it shows the correct path.

Correct. Problem only occurs when switching between driver objects. Clearing the selection and then selecting '1' driver does indeed show correct driver string.
