Where do you see these names? Can you perhaps post a screenshot too?

I tried it with the Genesis Prototype:

The red area shows the preset name. MPT, however, only shows the cropped name in the presets list. Dunno if it's a plug-in bug or OpenMPT's fault since i don't have other VST(i)s with preset names that start with numbers.

I see. Can it be caused by the ' ? Eg. Do preset names without the ' or with, but no letters get it too?

There are prests like "Sid's Pike", so it's probably a problem with number + apostrophe + text?

Does it show the name wrong also in the preset menu or just in the menu bar?

Apparently, the CreateVerifiedProgramName function does not accept chars between ' ' and 'A' as starting letters for a reason. As I can't see any sense in this, I'm going to remove that artificial limitation.
