PROC TABULATE in 9.4 M3 changes var name

So I ran this little piece of code under SAS9.4 M0 and also under M3 and get a different name for the colpctsum variable!

 

proc tabulate data=sashelp.cars out=fred;

   var horsepower;

   class origin;

   table origin,horsepower*colpctsum;

run;

 

Under M0 the var name is: Horsepower_PctSum_0

Under M3 the var name is: Horsepower_PctSum_0_Horsepower

 

This is very unfortunate and is causing us a lot of grief!

 

Is there anything in the release notes that refers to this new behaviour?

 

Thanks

I would definitely contact tech support with this question, if you haven't already.
