      Description

      I was fiddling with spawning structures with spawn eggs on a redstone test server one day, using a system that was originally built in 1.8. When the structures failed to spawn, I tried selecting the entities by hand, and got "That entity cannot be found" errors.

      What should happen:
      1.) Spawn Chicken with spawn egg
      2.) Run command using @e[type=Chicken] selector
      3.) Command selects chicken

      Instead:
      1.) Spawn Chicken with spawn egg
      2.) Run command
      3.) Get "That entity cannot be found"

      Reproduction:
      1.) Spawn a mob with a spawn egg
      2.) Attempt to select it

      It's a cool mechanic to be able to do this, and I'd like to see it back in action.
