Summary0001961: Reordering events can cause is-event-true and possibly other sexps to reference wrong event.
DescriptionI think this one goes clear back to retail but I finally figured out how to reproduce it reliably. These are the steps I took

-Place ship in FRED
-open event editor and add 2 events (I named them test and test2)
-close event editor
-edit departure cue of the ship to is-event-true test2 (or whatever the second one is)
-change ship back to player ship or exit ship editor
-open event editor
-add new event (don't even have to rename this one)
-drag it ontop of the first event so it falls to the second position
-click chain (although this seems to be optional as I left it out in one test)
-exit event editor
-go back to the ship with the departure cue in the ship editor
-it will now say is-event-true new event

I have seen other weird stuff like this when dealing with the first event in the list but this is the only one I have confirmed.
Additional Information3.6.11 Kara's Diaspora build from 7/7/09 but I'm pretty positive this dates clear back to retail.

Use notepad to move events around.

Agreed, this is a retail problem.

Although it's clearly a bug, I'm not really sure how to go about fixing it. Assigning it to FSO 4 for now, as it'll hopefully get reworked in wxFRED.
