Strange issue when building a SP2010 workflow in SP2013. It only occurs in one site collection and its subsites, the same problem cannot be reproduced in another.

Whenever I create a Collect Data task process using more than 1 field, something strange happens: the second field, and ONLY the second field, gets renamed to "Task Name" in the Task List, regardless of its chosen title or type - I've tried various names and used types string/person, it happens all the time.

I've created new workflows, deleted task lists, deleted all and every workflow-created custom fields and content types, but as usual SharePoint's a bit stubborn and keeps acting this way.

Did any of you experience this before? Tips for a fix or workaround?

It's a workflow in my Project Web App site collection that's causing this, so I'd rather not have to rebuild the whole thing.
