P.S.: The incident happened with a current FF under Mint.
Topic on 2017 wikitext editor/Feedback
Should I have posted it here?
Reopened, as I can't post in Phabricator
I added your details to the current task.
It just happened again, this time 605 KB ;)
It seems to be, that if I edit a section, get an edit conflict in there, and try to resolve it, the 2017WE thinks the section is the whole page and ditches the rest.
Like, consistently? We're looking for ways to reproduce this, if this is one I can add it to the task.
I never tried it again in the real world, as I feared it would happen again. This was the first time I dared, and voila, it struck again, so: yes, probably a pattern.
As an answer to Anomie over @Phab:
Not that I know any daft thing about API, but your reasoning reads reasonable ;)
I just had an edit conflict while editing the whole page, and it jumped back to the normal editor, and the normal diff-view inside this for edit conflicts. Nothing was lost.
