Subject Re: Atomic Update w/ Date Copy Field

To me, it sounds more like you shouldn’t have to care about such gory details as a user -
at all.

would you mind opening a issue on JIRA Todd? Including all the details you already provided
in as well as a link to this thread, would be best.

Depending on what you actually did to find this all out, you probably do even have a test
case at hand which demonstrates the behaviour? if not, that’s obviously not a problem :)
