We discovered a bug in our Redmine system. When you receive an issue edit conflict posting a private note to an issue, the flag making the note private gets lost.

Comment from our user:

Just an FYI. I wrote a comment and marked it "private". When I hit submit it came up with a dialog because it had been changed by another user from the time I started editing to the time I submitted. I said "discard all changes but submit my note" because I had no other changes. It did that. However, it lost the "private" status.

If you select 'Add my notes and discard my other changes' it still loses the private flag on the note. But if you select 'Apply my changes anyway' then it keeps the private note.

Is this the intended functionality here, because it seems the private note flag should persist in both cases, to me.
