It often occurs to me to add an edit summary to a question-edit immediately after submitting the edit, especially if the changes aren't obvious (formatting etc.). So I:

  1. Click "edit" again.
  2. Fill in the summary
  3. Click on "Save Edits".

The 'edit' (no actual change has been made to the title/body/tags) is accepted, but the summary doesn't show up, i.e. it is silently rejected.

I don't think it should work this way because the summary has been added by the original editor within the original edit's edit-window. In fact if I remember correctly, it to used to work as expected earlier; so perhaps this is a recent change.

This is annoying - the only way around it that I know of is by changing something in the body along with the edit summary, then edit it immediately again to undo that particular change. –  BoltClock's a Unicorn Apr 13 '12 at 20:18
