This has bugged me on and off forever. Why does my Ibuffer show shell<1> in the Filename/Process column for buffer named *shell*<2>?

 MRL Name                    Size Mode             Filename/Process                                                                                                
 --- ----                    ---- ----             ----------------

 *   *shell*<2>               190 Shell            (shell<1> run) ~/
 *   *shell*              4679769 Shell            (shell run) ~/
