Series information lost when clarifying an ambiguous pseud on a work

Description

Steps to reproduce:

  1. You need three user accounts: User1, User2, and User3. (You don't actually need access to User3's account, but the account needs to exist.)

  2. Log in as User2.

  3. View your profile, go to Manage Pseuds, and add a new pseud with the name User3.

  4. Log in as User1.

  5. Create a work with a brand new series and with "User3" listed as a co-creator.

  6. Because "User3" is ambiguous, you will be prompted to clarify whether you meant "User3 (User3)" or "User3 (User2)." Choose one – it doesn't matter which – and finish posting.

What happens:

The posted work does not belong to any series.

What should happen:

The posted work should belong to a series.

(Note that this is not identical to AO3-5606, which deals with adding ambiguous co-creators directly to the series.)
