Submitting a DST with a status of "Submitted" results in a server error


I submitted a new DST, then realized it needed an edit. I edited & saved the DST, then, not being sure if the edit would be part of the earlier DST submission, resubmitted. I got a 500 "Server Error" response to the form submission. I can't be certain the error is reproducible by the following steps, but it's my best guess as to how to do so.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Go to the master DST page
  2. Create a new DST.
  3. Submit the DST.
  4. From the master DST page, click the edit link for the DST.
  5. Edit & save the DST.
  6. From the master DST page, click the DST's name to open its page.
  7. Re-submit the DST.

To assist in debugging, here are reconstructions of the browser request & server response:

    @neqis, thanks for pointing this out!  It happens any time you have a DST that's been Submitted (but nothing has happened with it yet, so it's still in the Submitted state), and then the DST is Submitted again.

    The DST is still in the Sumbitted state and so is pending Approval.  The only issue with the current way it works (other than the ugly error) is that any updated "Submit Notes" won't be saved.

    I should have it fixed soon.  I will report back when I do.
