Image names for pictures in library Answered

When using more than just a few pictures for an Instructable I noticed a very annyoing "bug" with the filenames of the images.
It seems to be impossible to keep the original filename.
Instead it is completely replaced by some cryptic string.
I think the reason is to make sure all files have unique names for the servers but would it be possible to simply add this cryptic stuff AFTER the image name?

When embedding images into the text through HTML it just makes finding the right image a real pain...
