A book I have calls it a Sylvain knot.  An Internet search comes up with no such thing.  Is there another name for it?

I thought the whole point of the bowline was that it didn't shake apart.

I've never had it happen. I've never even had one loosen.
I think the point of the bowline is that it can (nearly) always be undone whatever load it has been under.

My understanding it is recognized as being subject to being shaken out, depending on the rope and use. Some people put a longer tail on shaken lines (spinnaker sheets) to counter this.

It can happen if you don't take up on the knot properly and have too short a tail, or if you're using yellow polypropylene 3-strand.
