Linked clone not created in group subdirectory

Description

I have several VMs in a group. I create a linked clone of one of the VMs in the group. The linked clone VM appears in the group in the VirtualBox Manager GUI, but the directory containing the new VM does not appear in the group subdirectory, as I would expect it to.

Eg given virtual machines in groups (named "Beta A testing", "Beta B testing"), with both groups and directory listing like this:

\---Virtual machines
    +---Beta A testing
    |   +---Version 10.1 SP2 updated to SP3 Beta A
    |   +---Version 10.1 SP3 Beta A
    |   +---XP Version 10.1 SP2 updated to SP3
    |   \---XP Version 10.1 SP3
    +---Beta B testing
    |   +---SP2 updated to SP3 beta B
    |   +---SP3 beta B
    |   +---XP SP2 updated to SP3 beta B
    |   \---XP SP3 beta B
    +---Build
    +---Version 10.1 SP1
    +---Version 10.1 SP2
    \---Windows 7

I made a linked clone of "SP3 beta B", called SFX-23779. The new directory SFX-23779 (containing the logs and snapshops for the new VM) appeared under "Virtual machines", whereas I expected it to appear under "Beta B testing" for consistency with the other grouped VMs.
