Wrong generated page_name/slug on first publish of custom post type


I have set up a custom post type (CPT) with the support for editor removed:

register_post_type( 'review', array(
    'label' => 'Reviews',
    'labels' => array(
        'name' => 'Reviews',
        /* etc */
    'description' => 'Tour reviews',
    'menu_icon' => 'dashicons-format-chat',
    'public' => true,
    'supports' => array(
    'has_archive' => false,
    'show_in_rest' => true,
    'rewrite' => array('slug' => 'reviews'),

(Yes, I’m using only the title for content 😉 )

This works fine! However…

When I add a new post of this type, the auto-generated permalink has the slug of another post type’s title instead of using the added post type’s title.

So it produces:


instead of:


Strangely, the “reviews” part is correct, but the page_name part isn’t.

Is this a bug or am I missing something?

NB: If I add support for editor in the register_post_type call, this problem doesn’t occur. But I don’t want the editor enabled for this post type.

NB2: After first publish, if I manually empty the permalink’s edit field and click “Update”, the correct slug/page_name is generated.
