tokens and instances

Hello,

I am using the shapeName Token in my file node in order get a different texture per shape.

It is working as long as i did not duplicate as an instance one my object using the token.

As soon as i instance my object the token is looking for the following string <transfromName_shapeName> instead of <shapeName>.

I have a workaround by creating a stand-in of my object with the fullPath checkbox unchecked . But it is node ideal.

Is it a bug or an expected behaviour ?
