Hello, i am not sure if this is a bug or a misunderstood feature, but;

  1. I made a symbol, 
  2. Used the symbol inside an asset
  3. Using the same asset, i've made changes and created a new asset.
  4. Now when i drag this asset on the file, symbol duplicates by itself in the assets panel.

Attached you may find a screecast. Is this a bug or am i missing something? 

Thx in advance.

AFAI can see the symbol is duplicated in the symbols panel. - I assume here that when an asset is created on the canvas, that it also then creates a new symbol since the asset contains an embedded symbol. Though I can't tell if that is as designed or more an unwanted creation side effect in this case.

Just tried this on on my Mac it doesn't do anything, I can change the symbol within the assets.

I have one donut which is the symbol, I created a square and placed that behind the symbol, then grouped both the square and symbol and made the first asset, I dragged that asset onto the workspace, changed the colour of the square and made a second asset, dragged the second asset onto the workspace and edited the symbol colour.

So, I have one symbol (donut) and two assets with the donut symbol and differently coloured squares. I can't see the issue  The symbols popped up in the symbols panel, seems there was a delay.
