Item2510: Universal Edit Button link does not append an accurate timestamp, so the browser loads a cached edit screen

Priority: CurrentState: AppliesTo: Component: WaitingFor:
Normal Closed Engine    
If you view the source on any page on Foswiki.org, you will see something like this, which provides a link for the Universal Edit Button:

<link rel="alternate" href="http://foswiki.org/bin/edit/Sandbox/TestTopic44476?_T=17 Dec 2009" type="application/x-wiki" title="edit TestTopic44476" /> 

Notice how the timestamp is 17 Dec 2009. If I edit this page twice on the same day, my browser (Chrome) loads the edit screen from its cache, providing old content in the edit box.

The timestamp on the normal edit link is a lot more accurate and prevents this:

http://foswiki.org/bin/edit/Sandbox/TestTopic44476?t=1261049898

The Universal Edit Button link should be the same.
