 I think this is a bug I've long time ago.
 On the admin panel, suppose I define some categories and sub-categories,
 then when editing a post I see these categories with checkboxes to chhose
 category/ies for a post.

 When checking only a sub category, the view is changes and this selected
 category appears on the top of the categories list, and not viewed as a
 subcategory.  Its functionality behaves  ok, and the slug shows the
 hierarchy (if %category% is being used), but by looking in the visual tree
 of categories in the edit posts now, the admin can not know the what is
 the category's hierarchy.

 When checking the boxes of the category and also its parent(s), so the
 tree is being preserved in its view, but this is not a solution, since
 then the %ctegory% slug holds only the parent as the slug.

 I think that the desired situation is that assigning post to a sub
 catgegory will remain the visual tree of category hierarchy as it is.

 Attached jpeg to example this. On the left, the category "subcat1-B-1" is
 in its place and the hierarchy of categories of   parent-child-grandchild
 is ok. After selecting the grand child for the category of the post and
 updating, this category goes to top and its hierarchy view is gone, and
 can't know what the hierarchy is. With a lof of categories and category's
 children, that may very very confusing...
