Summary0001228: "Convert existing samples to instruments first?" dialog creates one additional dummy sample.

If you select "Yes" or "No" in the aforementioned pop-up dialog, a new sample gets created out of nowhere.

For example, if your module has 4 samples that occupy sample slots 1~4, and you decide to convert them to instruments, it creates sample slot 5. If you select "Yes", then that 5th sample also gets converted to an instrument.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Create a new module in any format that supports instruments (MPTM, IT, or XM).
  2. Add some samples to the module. It doesn't matter how many.
  3. Go to the "Instruments" tab and click "New instrument".
  4. In the following dialog, click "Yes" or "No", but not "Cancel".
  5. Go to the "Samples" tab. You'll notice that it automatically created a new sample.

This is by design and not special to this situation - any newly inserted instrument will have an empty sample slot assigned to it. In particular, "Convert existing samples to instrument first?" adds a new instrument, and this new instrument is assigned to an - at this point empty sample slot.
