Radio button aggressively resets to global default in edit field
[I'm on WPMU 2.7.1 and BP 1.0]
This is easiest to explain with an example. Let’s say I have a radio custom profile field with three options, A, B, and C. I set ‘C’ as the default in the admin Profile Field Setup page.
As expected, the first time a user sets this field it is set to ‘C’ by default before they change it to something else.
Let’s say they change it to ‘A’.
The next time they go to edit the field it defaults back to ‘C’, instead of remembering ‘A’.
This is really not the desired behavior. The global default set by the admin should only apply before the user has set the field. After that, the default should be the last option the user selected.
Rationale: with multiple radio fields, a user entering the edit page to change one of them is probably going to unwittingly change the others back to the global defaults.
Is this a known bug? Is it possible I’ve missed something during setup?
