It seems to depend on how the question was reached: if the question was opened via the invite-link and the resume-later feature, directly clicking "Resume Later" will clear the answer, while when reaching the question from a previous one, the answer is correctly saved.

this one is an old one and hard to fix one.

Well, deleting answers should be prevented in any case! The work-flow described above ("Click invitation link, click save and resume -> data deleted") may not be that uncommon so I vote for fixing this.
