We should try to work on this soon, but I'm moving this to Medium priority: it's certainly not ideal behavior, but it's an edge case and the panel can still be minimized or dismissed.

[mediawiki/extensions/GrowthExperiments@master] Remove Try New Task panel on the history page

After the TryNewTaskPanel is shown we normally show the PostEditPanel with the suggested new tasks. My understanding of this issue is that we don't want neither the repeated "You've saved an edit. Thanks and keep going" and the post edit panel to show here at all. I updated the description cc @Cyndymediawiksim

Checked in testwiki wmf.22 - both Try New Task panel and the post-edit dialog are not shown anymore on the history page.
