[9.50b2] When adding existing type for hints, it is overwritten

The behaviour described in the bug report is either by design, or would be far too complex/time-consuming to be changed

[9.50b2] When adding existing type for hints, it is overwritten

1. Open Configuration - Display, click "User-defined: +" button.
2. Press Add for adding a pattern, enter e.g. test (in my case it was *), and select some custom fields, or just some text like "test", click OK.
3. Press Add and enter same pattern, e.g. "test", select some custom fields and click OK. Your previous pattern fields are silently overwritten!

Perhaps easiest solution is to check if entered pattern already exists and show its custom fields in corresponding field (currently it is empty when you add a type).

Make sure the text is NOT selected before you click on the Add button! Then it's appened.
