Change both when parents swapped

Have been finding many instances where error 202 is caused by a corrections officer having only completed change to one of the parents.  If you do one, do the other too please.

there's a problem... changing one, causes privacy settings to change unexpectedly preventing being able to change the other.

there's another thread about it, I'll link it when/if I find it again. (http://www.wikitree.com/g2g/260738/changing-father-mother-changed-the-privacy-settings)

I think the best we can do is leave a message for the Profile Manager/Trusted List to do the swap instead.

Apparently the proper workaround to the bug I mentioned above (I haven't actually tested it yet), would be not to try and swap the parents in place (because you end up with one parent as both father and mother, locking you out from further changes).

But instead, disconnect both parents (after making note of their ID's, of course), then reconnect each of them properly.

I don't think there's a bug exactly.  The story seems to be that you can connect a Yellow parent but you can't disconnect one.

Privacy Not Control it says, but this is obviously a Control issue.
