When Editing a field in the Gantt, the change doesn't always stick the first time you make an edit. 

Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Create a new project in PPM 
2. Navigate to the Gantt for the project by clicking on the Tasks tab then selecting 'Gantt' from the Tasks Tab drop down 
3. Enter a name for the Task and click Save to create the first task within the Gantt 
4. Click the Green check box icon to create a new task 
5. Enter a Name for the task and click Save and Return 
6. Attempt to edit a field in the Gantt and tab out of the field (In this example, double click on the Finish field for one of the tasks and select a different date (1/6/17) then the task's current date 
7. Click in a different cell in the Gantt 
Note, if the issue doesn't happen after creating the Second Task, repeat steps 4-7 until it occurs. It is inconsistent on which task number created makes the issue happen 

Expected Result: Change made is shown in the Gantt by a red line across the old data and the new data in black. In this example, the new date of 1/6/17 is shown in the Finish date cell and the old date is reflected in the cell with a red line through it. 

Actual Result: Change is not reflected in the edited cell in the Gantt. In the above example, the Finish Date does not change and remains incorrectly as 12/30/16. 

This issue applies to CA PPM 14.4, 15.1 and 15.2.

This issue is caused by CLRT-81701/DE32408
