Comment duplicated for comment then ID in quick succession within one observation

Step 1: add comment to observation

Step 2: very quickly (while comment has not yet appeared / is loading), hit i , p, enter , enter…

Step 3: whoops, the comment was copied and now appears twice.

as you can see, the comment did save twice, not a visual error.

Yes, and in I’d mode after you post comment and start adding I’d the comment is saved under I’d before the first one is fully processed, so you need to wait until it’s uploaded or will end up with 2 similar texts.

this seems to be the same problem as this, i think: https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/comments-descriptions-started-before-observation-finishes-indexing-get-erased/17664.
