      Description

      When editing a class and changing the multiselect separator used in a list property that is not relationally stored (i.e. that is stored in a LargeStringProperty, delimited by separator(s)), the existing values are not updated, so anyone editing objects after the change is made will have unexpected results.

      Example:
      1. Stored: a|b|c -> a list with 3 elements: [a, b, c]
      2. Change separator to ","
      3. a|b|c -> a list with 1 element: [a|b|c] (because the stored value's separator is still the old one and the ListClass.fromString() method can not properly deserialize the stored data into multiple elements.
