post_name in _posts not being updated in WP 3.8 causing download link to not work. #63

When adding a new document using the "Upload New Version" button, then uploading the file, no file is shown until the "Save" button is pressed, then the link to Download the file is missing the file name in the link, and just showing ".doc", which doesn't allow you to download the file.
Upon further investigation, the filename (post_name) is not being stored in the record in the _posts table. It is leaving the post_name field empty. If you edit the record and add the filename in the post_name field, the download link works.
A workaround to downloading the document is to click the preview button to download the file, but the file is saved as doc.doc and the filename is not known.
This just started happening after we upgraded to WP 3.8. Here is other info about plugins that may be related, etc.
WordPress 3.8
WP Document Revisions version 1.3.6
Media Library Categories version 1.3.1
Edit Flow version 0.8
Attachments version 3.5.3
WPEssence Bluk Categories version 1.2
(and other plugins that are not related to documents)

If anyone has any ideas how to fix this, please let me know. If you need more information, please let me know. Thanks
