Right now I cannot update attachment properties on Item4551, for example. Whenever I try to do it, I get:

I'm marking this as urgent, because updating attachment properties is an important feature. Please fell free to downgrade to Normal if appropriate. DIdn't test on 4.2, though (sorry).

I see the problem too. By the way, this is 4.2.

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 04 Dec 2007

It looks like we don't have a unit test for changing the property.

Nasty. Adding a test.
