testing problem reported by Jeanne. Article was locked, but it was me..  so I got back in OK.  No error messages.

Logged out and  logged back in as me -- no problem.

Now I have two separate windows open with same article open in both... 

Saved and changed in one window.

Tried to make different changes in first window and got this message:


You are not permitted to use that link to directly access that page (#157).

Those changes were not saved.

 Re-opened article and made new changes -- they do get saved.

This is NOT the problem Jeanne was having.
