Change of tracker loses work
We have an unusually slow network here in Indonesia (our Redmine is running in US) and so this may not be a serious issue for others, but when I create a new issue and then change the tracker from the default to another type there is 2-3 seconds delay before all the fields have refreshed.
I often forget this and start typing - I can sometimes get a sentence into an issue report and then have my typing discarded as all the fields refresh for the new tracker.
Since all the (default) fields seem to be the same for all the trackers I dont understand why this happens - could not the first two fields at least (Subject and Description) remain on screen regardless of tracker type and so be safe to type in?
Sorry if this seems petty, but it happens a lot!

This is not a big deal so feel free to reclose again if you like!
The exact sequence to reproduce is this:
1) Create a new issue
2) Change the tracker
3) While the 'spinning wheel' cursor is still showing mid page start to type the subject and/or description (typically a 5 sec window)
4) When the change of tracker finishes loading any text typed after changing tracker is lost.
I know this sounds a bit dumb, but sometimes you assume that the page has finished reloading (there is no visible indication when it is done except the Loading wheel goes away - and it is not very obvious) and then lose work. Would not have reported this if it had not happened dozens of times.
