Summary11481: Mandatory warning triggered when it shouldn't

The mandatory warning appears when somenone is presented a question for the first time and didn't click Next button. This happens because he answered a question in a group further in the Survey, came back and change some answer and modified a condition and is presented with a new question.

The mandatory check should be triggered only if the user tries to click next, not before he clicks.

I use LS 2.50 build 160620.

Additional Information

To reproduce the bug in this Survey example:

1-At FilterQuestion choose option "Question 2" then click next.
2-Answer any (yes or no) at question 2 then click next.
3-At question 4, click previous.
4-Back at question 2, click previous again.
5-Back at FilterQuestion, this time choose option "Question 3" then click next.
6-You should see a warning at question 3 similar as if you tried to skip it without answering.

This bug can be presented also in a simpler Survey. Group 1(question 1), Group 2 (question 2), Group 3 (question 3). Question 2 appears based on question 1's answer. First time, answer question 1 to skip question 2. Go back and change question 1's answer. Mandatory warning for question 2 appears.

TagsNo tags attached.
