Exported blocks to autocad are renamed - metadata problem.

Not applicable

I'm trying to save layouts as drawings with view-ports for other consultants to use in a project.
The problem I'm having is that a block I've converted from Autocad that contains drawing number, date, scale, name's and so fort is renamed after conversion back to dwg.
Original block name is ritninfo_A1 and the name of the gdl object I've made is the same but after conversion the name of the block is ritninfo_A1[1].

Why is this?

And the block uses hidden fields for some of the data. Is this possible in a gdl object?

The block is used as meta data for our contractors database to sort drawings and our drawing is rejected due to wrong block name.
