This is perfectly harmless. Here's a patch that fixes it:

I havent' really looked at sheet numbers yet. I think the logic
that assigns them doesn't quite work for us anyway, but that
should be fixable.

How good that we want to change then from H-TPxxxx to TPxxxx anyway :)

I'm still a few days behind, and didn't notice any trouble in
eeschema besides the library mangling. I see that my patches no
longer apply with the latest. Will update soon.

KiCad will save all sheets. If you use File -> Save, it will
only save the current sheet.
