      Description

      The user may experience that metadata entries get deleted without his intention during the Describe step:

      Setup:
      There are two fields with the same element name on the same page of a describe step - one without a qualifier, one with qualdrop_value, e.g.

      Field 1: dc.subject
      Field 2: dc.subject.

      {mesh,lcsh,other}

      If there are identical strings in Field 1 and Field 2 (e.g. dc.subject "dog", dc.subject.other "dog", dc.subject.lcsh "cat"), deleting one of them will automatically delete the other as well.

      Example1:
      If the user deletes "dog" in dc.subject, DSpace deletes "dog" in dc.subject.other as well.

      Example 2:
      If the user deletes "dog" in dc.subject.other, DSpace deletes "dog" in dc.subject as well.
