      Description of the issue

      Validate only if field has been modified tick box becomes unticked if you change the auto-enter calculation on the field

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      New Database
      2 text fields
      set field 1 to auto-enter calculated value TextFormatRemove(Self)
      set field 1 validated by calculation value 0 (zero-always fail), make sure validate only if modified is ticked
      Browse mode
      New record
      put value in field 2 and commit
      --you may get error here
      Manage database, change field 1 auto-enter by adding a space after calculation, don't touch validation, OK
      put value in field 2 and commit
      --validation error from field 1 (box unticked!)
      you can repeat this by ticking the validate only.. box; saving; checking (ok); modifying ae calc again; testing (fail)
