Description

Autosave during Save or Publish click results in duplicate

ENV: WP trunk r4511
Visual editor disabled b/c of unrelated testing

The current very short autosave interval 'autosave_interval', '16' makes it easy to demonstrate the bug creating multiple drafts or a draft and a published post by clicking either Save or Publish while "Saving ..." is shown left of those buttons.

ACTUAL RESULT
Extra draft copy of the post

EXPECTED RESULT
Obvious.

If a solution can't be found behind the scenes, then a solution would be to disable the Save and Publish buttons while a save is in progress.

[4512] changes the interval to 2 minutes.

This problem is usually seen when the server is experiencing a slowdown or having DB problems. Autosave send the save but we don't get a post ID back. So, we don't realize the save went through and we do another draft.

Also, [4507] should disable the buttons during autosave. That might be enough to close out this issue.

[4507] does not seem to work as I was already at r4511 . I have tried again now and able to duplicate the previous buggy behavior.
