Patch doesn't fix issue just hides it. so removing patch for review (shouldn't be on commit either)
For me going tohttp://en.m.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/0.88507092515095#/random and adding a discussion closes the talk overlay but doesn't update the overlay with the new topic.. I have to hard refresh the page :/
Ah ok, i thought you mean, that the add doesn't work completly :) (The error in the console is "fixed" in this patch: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/153341/ (but only by don't try to hide the talk overlay)).
The main problem is adressed in this patch (with other improvements):
So i can add the bug there :)
shouldn't be on commit either
I think that a bug report should track all patches working to solve this bug, including the patches just hide/remove/deactivate the function, until it's fixed. But i don't know, how you (and others) see this :)
