I found a bug.

After long edit of the page, when saving you gat Failed token message atr the top and Forcing preview is initiated. And on this page, you can save the page again and Bio is stored, but Start date and End Date are lost (set to empty) and lost. This happened to me on FreeSpace page. I didn't test it with profiles, but such error deserve attention. This happened to me a few times and now i located when it happens.

Example:

I've been experiencing this same problem with a Free Space page I'm developing. I couldn't figure out what was triggering it, but now I know thanks to Aleš. I frequently work in long sessions on this document, and get the Failed Token message a lot. The Start Date has blanked itself out several times, and I've added it back in several times. Has anyone addressed this bug? What's the status? It's an aggravation.

It looks like maybe it got lost among a lot of other to-dos. I'll make sure it's still on our list to look at, Joyce.
Thanks Abby!
