Preparing ourselves for our presentation on this evenings DDC event, Arend-Jan Kauffmann pointed me to his msconnect entry on the Modified flag. Until today I wasn't in the situation to experience myself. So just now I did some test and ... I am glad I did already gave my vote to it.
Although it's actually an ordinary bug Arend-Jan has reported it on msconnect, this gives us all the possibility to all view it and vote for it. So go there and vote for it. This definitely needs to be fixed.
I was informed that: “The modified flag issue mentioned with R2 has ... been resolved with hotfix 244786”
This issue is fixed already. The hotfix will be released on the next week.
Great and thanx for sharing this.
I opened a support incident with MS on this issue a few weeks ago. The response was that "Dev has decided that they will fix this". The incident remains open until a hotfix has been released; I have heard nothing further on the status of this.
