Tested on WP 2.3.2 without any plugins activated.

  1. Start write new post "Post 1"
  1. Upload picture in Upload tab

(picture appears in write tab)

  1. Insert picture in post (not really necessary)
  1. Publish
  1. Start write new post "Post 2"
  1. Goto Browse all tab
  1. Change e.g. decription of picture uploaded in step 2
  1. Goto mamage posts and edit Post 1
  1. Picture no longer appears in Browse tab, only in Browse All tab

The reason is the way post_parent is updated when updating attachments. In the Browse All tab you have attachments from different post_parents. If you update such an attachment its post_parent is set to the current post, which is a large negative number (temp_ID) when you are in the write new post screen.

I dont believe this would be a problem under the current version of WordPress, There is possibly another ticket elsewhere which describes a similar issue with the new interface.

Closiong as invalid due to age.
