[Portfolio] filefile displayName

We COULD use the renderer to filter out "filefile" and replace it with
nothing...but that is really not how the default behavior should be
I am seeing this when we:

 - preview the form
 - create a "New Form Item" in Resources
 - "Create New" when the form is in a portfolio template.

You are correct, it does not occur in the matrix.

My memory is that that "filefile" only shows up in certain preview situations, like Forms > Edit > Preview. In the actual Matrices tool, the default display name is that ugly concatenation of elements. I don't remember what it is if you create a form in the Portfolios tool, but I didn't think it was filefile. But if I'm wrong, sorry to waste your time.
