Hi all,

The following is kind of driving me nuts! :) I thought this to be gone in 2.3 rc2 but it is still there. However it is probably my code. Because I have to post code from three files, I will use pastie, otherwise this post will get too long.

I have two dataobjects: NormalColor.php (see here) and ProductStyle.php (see here. I use them in a many_many relationship on ProductPage.php, here. This seems to work. But not always. In the CMS, when I click on the checkboxes in the tablefields, sometimes it is not saved in the database. Or some are saved. It varies. I had this problem with earlier versions of Silverstripe as well. It feels like it is some problem with the javascript for the complex table field (on the CMS side in the browser I mean), but I'm not sure. Perhaps it is something weird in my code. It happens even with a clean install of the CMS. Needless to say, this can be a challenge for a client using the admin interface. Anybody experiencing this also? Does my code need fixing?

Help much appreciated, thanks!

Update: problem improves when I reload the flushed CMS (with admin?flush=1) every time *before* I make and save a change in either table... improves, but not 100% of the time...
