331331 - Inconsistency in displaying Latest rev and status while user with RO access is changing the lifecycle status.
Unfortunately I couldn't wait 13 months for you to fix this along with my other 18 or so issues I submitted back in May 2006.
I've sinced moved on to DBWorks.
Thanks anyway, I'm sure someone will be happy.
