3. Set Allow multiple responses or update responses with one token: On
4. Begin survey, complete a few pages.
5. Close browser
6. Return to survey with same token
7. Responses are not reloaded (although they are saved in database).

I rolled back my code base to Version 3.22.16+200519 and token persistence works correctly -- appears a bug was introduced in 200525. To confirm, I updated back to 200525 after rolling back, and token persistence fails again.

And it is changes to application/controllers/index.php between 200519 and 200525 that causes token persistence to fail.

Can anyone please tell me when this bug fix will be incorporated in an update? We have major issues with our current survey due to that bug. Thanks!

I searched for this issue (16354) on both GitHub and the release details/changelog for limesurvey3.22.19+200605 and I found nothing. Are you sure it is fixed and included? Where can I find the details for it?

Or was this issue (16354) implicitly fixed by and not mentioned as fix again because it was a double recored issue for the same problem?
