I don't understand why I am seeing the "A version of this page you were editing date/time was saved as a draft. Do you want to view the changes, resume editing, or discard it?" or what I should do.
It comes down to what "editing" and "saved as a draft" mean I guess. In situations where I have encountered this message and I have a good idea of what I had been doing (it happened recently, not 5 months ago):
A draft is an automatic save of a page.
There is no "save a session", so I'm not sure what the problem is. You save a page, and it's completed, so there's no draft.
If you leave a page edited but do not save, and the draft auto-saves, then yes, you should get question if you go back to it.
I do agree with you that a draft that is identical to the source because you never actually edited anything should not ask though - it's not useful really,
If a draft is an autosaved version of a page, it should be overwrotten when the page is either Saved or Closed. "If you leave a page edited but do not save, and the draft auto-saves, then yes, you should get question if you go back to it." implies that this is the only situation where I should see this message ... but it isn't. If only it were.
I KNOW I have edited and saved a page, and gone back to edit it again a short time later and I see this message. I also see it in various flavors at other times, and even for changes made in a different version (Scroll version), and IIRC even for different files.
I guess my real issue is that it is a vague and often misleading error message that does not help me and actually confuses more than it helps.
