Why switchport disconnects upon renaming label

We have Foundry/Brocade switches. We noticed that when we change the name/label of a port it temporarily disconnects/shutsdown and then reconnects. Is there anyway to avoid this? I can't figure out why changing the name would cause this. One thought I had was if it was an auto configured port vs statically configured (for 1000/full vs auto)?

we found no solution to this except a quirky workaround:

configure a port - set speed to something other than automatic. save. enable port and save. change back to automatic and save. this seems to leave the port enabled and in auto mode. shouldn't have to do this, but it seems to work.
