Discard Changes Should Not Pop Up If No Changes Were Made

This seems to be a bug that was introduced several months ago.

If I open a workflow to look at, but don't make any changes, a dialog pops up asking me if I want to discard changes. This is misleading, since there were no changes.

Dialog title: Discard Changes

Dialog text: Unsaved changes to the current workflow will be lost. Continue?

    This issue is causing a lot of confusion for users. There are now many workflows in our tenant that have drafts saved after the publish date. Is there any way to see if there is a difference between what was published and what is saved at a later time?

    I also noticed this and I speculate that it might be a side effect of a new feature that enables auto-saving of workflows that are open, It may be that while you have the workflow open and make no changes the feature is making snapshots of the session, when you go to close this may be a validation to ensure that you intend to discard that snapshot.

    I cannot be certain that is actually the case but the timelines of this do line up.
