fix the comment editing function
The comment editing function is broken. If I edit a comment after having it submitted by clicking on "edit", all newlines separating paragraphs are gone. If I now manually add those back, they're not going to show up, after submitting the modified comment, i.e. I get one huge, unreadable paragraph of text.
When I now edit it again and try to put <br> between paragraphs, it deletes all text starting from <br>, and I won't even get it back when I edit the message again.
For an example of a comment with lost paragraph separators after editing, see my comment on vodo.net/alpfd .
Hmm, now my fixed comment suddenly shows up. Correctly formatted with paragraph boundaries. Maybe there was a caching issue?
It's even worse than I thought: If I reload the page with the modified comment, my changes don't show up. If I edit the comment again and press submit, it says: "Comment is a duplicate -- not posting". I double-checked that I really pasted my modifications in the right box and pressed the "submit" button below the edited comment, not on the new comment on top.
