Publishing a new page after editing an existing page confuses WordPress

Reported by: jgbishop Owned by: ryan
Milestone: 2.5.1 Priority: normal
Severity: major Version: 2.5
Component: General Keywords:

Description

If a user edits an existing page (call it page A), then immediately creates and publishes a new page (call it page B), WordPress returns the user to page A, not page B.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Go to "Manage > Pages" and select an existing page to edit.
  2. Edit the selected page.
  3. Save your changes.
  4. From the saved page, go to the "Write > Page" screen.
  5. Create a new page.
  6. Publish the new page.
  7. Note that WordPress has returned to the page we edited in step 2, not the one we just created in step 5. In other words, WordPress didn't return to the appropriate place!

Expected results: WordPress should return to the page we were just editing, not one we edited a while ago.

Actual results: WordPress forgot where we were.
