      Description

      If one starts filling out an item submission form, perhaps entering an author, but then one doesn't click the add button yet, because one is unsure of the author name just yet, it requires some verification before clicking add, and then one skips down to the title, enters it, and enters an alternate title, and, confident that's all correct, clicks the add button for the title... the add button adds both the alternate title and the author name. This is a tricky UX issue: sure, the user can catch the mistake and continue to edit/revise the submission. But the fault of this error lies with the XMLUI, not the user, and requiring the user to verify system behavior is not friendly. Tested on Demo.dspace.org, which is currently running DSpace 6.2, though it may affect earlier versions of DSpace.
