I used 'New Project...' from the AS7 'Start' page, then chose 'GCC C Executable Project'


It creates the project, and a main.c file containing the usual "skeleton":



But it's put the wrong name in the automatically-generated header comment, Gromit! 


In this case, it's put 'uart.c' - when it's actually 'main.c'


In general, it puts '<project-name>.c' - but the file name is always 'main.c'


Not a big deal, of course - but not right.


When I create a new file, it does put the correct name into the automatically-generated header comment.
