Custom photo title is overwritten upon completion of upload

Severity: normal Version: 3.5.1

Description

Version: 3.5.1 (latest)
Environment: Chrome 24.0.1312.57 on Mac OSX 10.8.2

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a new post and click the Add Media button.
  2. Add several large photos (>4MB). This is necessary to give you time to perform step 3.
  3. Add new titles to the photos that are in the process of uploading.

Output: after a photo finishes uploading, its newly-added title get overwritten by a default title (taken from the filename)
Expected output: on the completion of a photo upload, the title field should be checked and preserved if necessary, not overwritten

Hi franksvalli!

Thanks for reporting this. Apologies that it's taken so long for you to receive a reply.

I'm able to reproduce this. It also appears to clear out the rest of the fields after the upload finishes, so you lose Title, Caption, Alt Text, Description, et. all.

I agree that we should either fix this, or disable the fields until the images have finished uploading.
