Description Matt Conway 2005-07-05 18:48:56 UTC
If I edit the same page twice as an anonymous user, I get the edit lock warning
when the second one saves.
However, if I edit the same page twice as a logged in user (WikiSysop), no
warning is given on save, and the second save simply overwrites the first.  This
is very bad.

Both cases were done using multiple tabs in the same firefox instance - haven't
checked if this happens with requests from different machines.

This is happening on a stock cvs get as of 2005/07/05 with a stock db as created
by installer on a local mysql instance on php 5.0.4 on linux FC4

if you are logged in as the same user each time, this behaviour is  
intentional, although controversial.   see discussion at bug 1150.
