Koma-script Book Figure/Table numbering.

Hello All,

I have searched the archives and googled for information, but I found 
nothing useful. If I have missed something, please be gentle with me! ;-)

My development setup:

* Linux Mint 19.3 64 bit.
* Lyx 2.2.4 (From the Mint distro, not downloaded.)
* Koma Script Book document class.

I have a book in progress, hopefully to be published "soon". I wrote my 
previous book in ASCIIDoctor-pdf and it was a total nightmare when the 
publisher wanted a re-jig of the chapters as the table/figure/listings 
all had to be manually renumbered. I have some experience with pure 
LaTeX, but I much prefer Lyx, I get more done that way.

The publisher requires me to number tables and figures as "n.n.n". I 
have set my Document's modules to "Number tables by section", "Number 
figures by section".

The book is split into parts and each chapter is a separate file 
inserted as child documents with include type = "include". Each child 
has the same options as the master - I have checked.

When I preview a child document, the generated PDF is correctly 
numbering the tables and figures as "n.n.n: Caption_text", however, when 
I preview the master document the tables and figures are now "n.n.n.: 
Caption_text" -- there's an extra dot before the colon.

This problem does not occur if the Standard Book document class is used. 
However, I do prefer the Koma-script one.

The problem also doesn't occur if I don't use parts. Unfortunately, I 
need parts.

I have a test case if anyone is interested, but I doubt I'd be allowed 
to attach it to a list posting, especially as a new subscriber.

Has anyone seen this problem before? If so, did you find a solution?

Thanks in advance.
