IWP Record in Use error with tabs and global fields

Description of the issue

Filemaker Server Advanced 9.0.3 on Windows 2003 ServerI have a layout MyLayout with two tab controls: TAB1, TAB2I have global fields defined in a table: gField1, gField2gField1 is on TAB1gField2 is on TAB2User1 connects to the database through a web browser and navigates to MyLayoutUser1 navigates to TAB2 and goes into Edit modeUser2 connects to the database through a web browser and navigates to MyLayoutUser2 navigates to TAB2 and and tries to go into Edit mode, but gets an error message:"Record in use: Your attempt to edit the record failed because another user is currently using the record" This error does NOT occur when:1. Using the FMP Client2. There are no tabs and both users navigate to the same global field and go into Edit mode. This seems to be an inconsistency in the way global fields are handled. Peter
