What version are you running?

What's the URL of the page containing the problem?
Any review request page

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Create a review request and publish a review on it
2. Click the "Add comment" button on the review
3. Type in some text and hit 'OK'
4. Now, click on the comment that you just added and edit it. Modify the text to something completely different and hit 'OK'.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
The screen will show only the most recent version of your comment. When you click "publish", both the original version of your comment followed by the more recent version will get published. This gets especially annoying if you have edited a comment many times before publishing (I did this earlier and ten only-slightly-different comments appeared when I published).

Also, refreshing the page after editing a comment (before publishing) will cause both the old and new messages to display. There doesn't seem to be a way to delete the old comment.

Instead of the comment having a pencil icon next to it, it has multiple pencil icons (one for each time you made an edit and hit 'OK').

What operating system are you using? What browser?
Windows 7, Firefox 4.0.1
When using IE9, editing comments works as expected.
