Not able to  “Assign Resources” to Project Tasks due to Continuous Error message

There are two related issues as follows:

1. Not able to assign resources to a task, when using the plural "Assign Resources" (error message is thrown continually warning the user to save the plan (and thus the task) ) and this goes in loop for ever
2. An additional warning is misleading, if it is the first time "Assign Resources" is used on a brand new task.

ERROR
-----------------------
1.You cannot assign a resource to this task. You have not saved project plan changes after creating the task
2.Assigning planning resources saves all pending changes. You cannot undo this action. Do you want to continue?


Changes

 STEPS to Duplicate the issue
-------------------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create new project
2. Create new task subtask to the root (project)
3. Then, without saving yet,attempt to add resources by using “Assign Resources" >> Note plural
4. Warning message displays "Assigning planning resources saves all pending changes. You cannot undo this action. Do you want to continue?"..
  .Click OK.
5. Error message displays "You cannot assign a resource to this task. You have not saved project plan changes after creating the task."
  .. Click OK
