I had written some macros and I was using import variables to make
them available to a tiddler. The functionality of those macros didn't
work until I manually loaded the tiddlers containing the macros. I
know there is a special tag which makes macros globally available...I
didn't try that to see if it has the same issue.

How do you edit the draft? When I click on the link for "Draft of xxx"
it opens already in edit mode with blank body. What is the step #5
after the 4 reproduction steps I listed? I haven't found a way to
recover the content.

You are right. Turns out I hadn't noticed I was using importvariables
in these tiddlers and incorrectly blamed misbehaving functionality on
fields not being loaded rather than on broken importvariables.
