Symptoms

On pages where there are Long Edit Boxes pointing to long character derived work fields, false save warning messages appear to users, even if they have already saved.   The issue did not occur on the same pages in 8.4x before the upgrade to 8.50.   The problem in 8.50 is specific to Long Edit Boxes that points to a Long Character field.

If it's a regular Edit Box, the issue does not occur, nor does a Long Edit Box that points to a regular Character field.

General Replication Steps
--------------
1. Build a page that has a Long Edit Box which points to a Long Character (0) field
2. While on the page in PIA, make some changes to the Long Edit Box value
3. Save
4. Try to navigate away from the page
5. Receive false warning saying data is not saved:

You have unsaved data on this page. Click OK to go back and save, or Cancel to continue.
