---- Reported by nengard@gmail.com 2010-04-27 20:22:28 ----

I created a notice template and picked the wrong module so i went back to edit it.  I chose a new module and hit save and it did not change the module.

In my test the problem isn't that submitting the form doesn't do anything, it's that it does the wrong thing. What happens is a *new* notice is created with the update values you set. You end up with a duplicate notice with the updated module value.

This problem happens because of the way submissions are handled. First the code checks to see if you're updating a notice or editing it:

if (letter_exists($module, $code)) {...

The letter isn't going to exist, because the value for $module is the *new* value you're trying to update it to. There for the code proceeds to performing an insert instead of an update.

Simple change, easy to read.  Some changes to spacing that are purely aesthetic and do not cause any breakage.  Marking as Passed QA.
