In v9 try:

1. Create a new field
2. In the Message Box, run:

   put the short name of last field

I get the name instead, e.g. "field id 1009".

IIRC the short name of a field is empty until you set it.  When a field 
is unnamed, "the short name" returns empty and "the name" would return 
the form shown above, yes?

Otherwise, we have no way to know when a field has not yet been named.
