Post timestamp does not correspond to publication time

When using the advanced editing screen, and editing a draft post, once you click Publish, the post time does not correspond to the actual time the post was published, but rather, to the most recent time that you clicked Save and Continue Editing (or Save). As a result, posts come out with a publish time of a few minutes prior to publication, and a modified time of the actual publication time.
The issue seems to be that "Edit timestamp" is checked, and so whatever happens to be in the timestamp field is used, instead of the actual time. This is useful if one wants to future publish or backdate their posts, but if one wants the post to have a publication time of the actual time it was published, then there's no way to do that.
If "Edit timestamp" is NOT checked, then on Publish, the post gets the most recently saved time, which in the case of a test post I made, was June 24th! Not exactly the desired behavior.
