Devs, do you happen to have any updates regarding my previous post? I just don't want this issue (if it is, in fact, as described) to slip through the cracks.
Also, after using 3.0.5 for a couple weeks, I must say, I am absolutely thrilled. This is a huge release and the UI improvements alone (AJAX "Loading..." modals, in particular) make it well worth the effort to upgrade, which was minimal in my case. You all should be extremely proud of your hard work.
