Bug (?) when renaming a field that's the label of a cascading dropdown

    If you have a field called ffff in a table called tttt that's been designated as the label of a cascading dropdown, and you rename the field to gggg, when you try to display the table you get an error message "unknown column tttt.ffff..."

    As far as I can tell, this is because the attribute "join-label=ffff" in the attribs column of the jos_fabrik_joins table doesn't get updated when you rename the field.

    Editing the label to gggg fixes the problem.

    I do appreciate that automatically identifying all incoming joins and updating their attributes might be a bit heavy. Maybe a warning in the manual...
