I have raised a ticket with IT.

I can't reproduce this wiki issue and haven't seen any other reports. Is
anyone else experiencing this?

That does not result in a new thread. A channel generally stays within the
same thread for its lifetime, although there are cases where it can be
moved between threads or temporarily be handled by another thread. It's not
guaranteed as a unique identifier for a channel, only uniqueid or if you
are referring to at a given point in time - a channel name.
