When deleting a Visualizer layout in Primavera P6 Professional R16.1 Patch Set 6, the wrong layout is deleted.

This problem occurs on multiple computers, in multiple environments, with both a Microsoft SQL Server database and an Oracle RDBMS database, with both a new database and an upgraded database.

The problem occurs with 'Gantt', 'TSLD' and 'Schedule Comparison' layouts.

The correct layout should be deleted.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Two Visualizer Gantt layouts are present, “Gantt-NEW” and “GANTT-OLD”.
2. The layout “GANTT-OLD” is deleted.
3. The Visualizer 'Manage' screen shows that only the layout “Gantt-NEW” remains.
4. When Visualizer is reopened, only the layout “GANTT-OLD” is present. Apparently the wrong layout was deleted.

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users cannot delete the desired layout.
