Html.EditAttributes triggers autosave


I've got a block called QuickFacts, it's not used as a regular block but instead used as a composite property (AvailableInEditMode=false) on a page. The block has two strings, a few ints and a DateTime as properties.

In my view I display it using a paragraph and Html.EditAttributes so it's easy for the publisher to update the information.

    <p @Html.EditAttributes(m => m.CurrentPage.QuickFacts)>
                    @if (Html.HasValue(Model.CurrentPage.QuickFacts.ConstructionStart))
                        @Html.PropertyFor(m => m.CurrentPage.QuickFacts.ConstructionStart)<br />
.... </p>


But for some reason as soon as I'm in edit mode and click the area to edit my properties, EPiServer thinks I changed some value and auto saves the page and says there is "Changes to be published". I'm sure no values has been changed.

Anyone know why EPiServer thinks that I changed the page?

Is it 7.0 or 7.1? As far as I remember, there was a problem with DateTimePicker widget which triggers change event on initializing. I believe that it was fixed on 7.1.

It's 7.1. So I guess it's not fixed.

Do you remember if you've seen any information about this, Duong?
