As designed Message editing issue?

Just noticed here that if you edit a message, you don't edit the actual message on the thread, but the last saved edit - even when you cancelled the edit.

To explain:

I posted a message here.

Then I thought I should rewrite the entire message, but after typing a couple of words, decided the original message would be fine, so cancelled the edit.

However, when I went to edit the message again, the only option was the edit the couple of words from my cancelled edit.

To edit my posted message, I would have to copy/quote it into the message box.

Just FYI, in case this is something you'd want to look at.

This is generally intentional in that we cache the overlay. This is mostly done to prevent losing your work in an accidental dismissal of the overlay.

I should note that you can still undo to get back to the original.
