Conflence 6.0.7 Edit then Close shows the whole page changed

We migrated from Confluence 5.8.14 to 6.0.7. Now on some pages the users report that the discard draft or keep draft dialog comes up even if they made no changes on the page.

After an update of the page the next edit close loop does not come up with the dialog.

Is there a known issue between 5.8.14 and 6.0.7 about drafts?

This widget could not be displayed.

Are you using any addons? ScriptRunner for Confluence? We had a similar issue because pages contained macros that were migrated during the upgrade process. This results in drafts which are not saved. When a user edits the page & tries to close it without saving, a non noticable change has happend in the storage format of the page. Therfore the save dialog. Did you check the version history of the affected pages?
