SSAS: Deploying to renamed databases
Last year I logged an issue on the connect site around deploying from BIDS and renamed databases. https://connect.microsoft.c... I got a couple of messages relating to this issue, one saying that it was being closed as it was a duplicate issue and then another one recently where it was updated to indicate that the issue has been fixed in SQL Server 2008.

BIDSHelper: DeployMDXScript feature enhanced
Have you ever renamed a deployed database in SSMS and then tried to deploy changes using BIDS? I don't imagine that it is too common an occurrence as it does not work!
