Description fiel changed

Added by Nicolas Paez at 2013-06-17 08:11 pm

Hi everyone,

I am facing a very strange issue. Sometimes, when I modify an issue, the notification mail I get says "Description changed........" despite I didn't touch the description.

Have ever seen something like this?

Doesn't ring a bell. Do you have any plugin installed in your ChiliProject or some Plugins in your Browser that might cause this? Have you tried another browser?

I have several plugins.
I have also tested with different browsers but I couldn't find a pattern.
It seems to be related to this known issue ( in Chiliproject, that is reported as fixed.
The problem seems to be that the description field is detected as modified by chili because of the way line-endings are processed. Despite the user doesn't modify the field, the browser manages line endings in a way that when the issue is posted to chili, the line endings have change and chili consider that the field changed.

I don't know if the problem is the same.

Can you create an issue and edit it directly after without touching the description, all with the same browser? This should make sure the browser sends the same line endings, if this still triggers the problem then it's not due to the browsers.
