Potlatch drops a tag on edit of a similar one using suggested popups

Reported by: attila.asztalos@… Owned by: Richard
Priority: critical Milestone:
Component: potlatch (flash editor) Version: 1.0
Keywords: Potlatch lost tag popup list Cc:


Potlatch quietly looses a tag (ex:"name") when one adds another tag with a similar name (ex:"name:hu"), if one TYPES the exact name of the first tag (type:'name') then SELECTS with the mouse the suggested popup (select:'name:hu') which appears by this point if this sort of edit already occured in that session (I'm editing live, in Firefox 3.5.8). Apparently, at this point both the original tag and the new tag are perfectly correct, and still present. However, if one clicks away ("saving..."), then clicks right back to the edited node, the original tag ("name") is gone, only the new "name:hu" tag remains.

Note that the bug is NOT triggered if one types anything else then the exact name of the first tag (ie. type:'nam', select:'name:hu' does not seem to delete the "name" tag, neither does doing the full type:'name:hu').

I find this behavior specially dangerous, myself having apparently "deleted" about 100 original name tags before even realizing what is going on - and a revert loses all newly added tags in this case.
