New issue 1041 by Jason.Govig: Too easy to lose edits
*NOTE: Do not post confidential information in this bug report.*
What's the URL of the page containing the problem?
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Initiate a new review, for example using post-review
2. Click in the "Description" field and add a bunch of information.
3. Click "Publish" without clicking "OK" first.
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I expect the publish to incorporate my new edits. Instead, it drops the
new text without warning. It should either disable the publish button while
a field is being edited, incorporate the edits automatically, or prompt the
user to continue ("Field 'blah' not saved. Continue?").
What operating system are you using? What browser?
WinXP64 with Firefox 3 and CentOS4.6 64-bit with Firefox 2.
Please provide any additional information below.

"OK" button for that field, I assumed the edits were "live", especially
after a tab-completion. I later figured out that typing the enter key saved
