This bug was reported by a participant of the Feb 2005 KNB workshop (below is
part of an e-mail from Laura Downey about this bug):

"....bug had to do with specifying the coordinates. So for
instance, let's say you enter some coordinates on the screen where you enter
geographic metadata and then you hit okay. Then at the next screen you
decide to edit which takes you back to the previous page where you just
typed in the coordinates. When our user did this the coordinates he had
previously entered were not displayed.

Also, it seems there may be some issue with saving the data. So again the
same scenario, user gets to the geographic metadata page and enters some
coordinates. Then goes to the next page, then clicks edit and is returned
to the previous screen. At this point he was expecting to see the
coordinates he had previously entered, but he didn't as described above, so
he thought this was just a bug of not displaying, so he hit the cancel
button and later he discovered that the original coordinates he had input
were not saved.

It looks like the action of editing, clears the coordinates previously
entered, which obviously is causing confusion for the user. However,
let's say that issue was solved and the user hit edit, and had the
coordinates displayed as previously entered and decided not to change
anything, they should be able to hit cancel without losing that previously
saved data and this did not seem to be the case. So this is a "dual" bug or
two bugs".

Editing geographic coordinates and then re-editing them works for me with no loss or perceived loss of user-entered data.
