Product:Developer Tools Product Version:4.5
Classification:Serious Bug Reproducible:Always
Summary: If I edit a JavaScript testing script that Instruments currently has imported, it will complain that it has changed each time.

Steps to Reproduce:
- Run a UI Automation test script on an iOS application, such as the "Automatic for the People UI Automation Script.js" script that comes with this project:
- Now edit the script.
- Now run the script (i.e. Record Trace) again in Instruments

Expected Results:
- Instruments uses the updated script without complaint.

Actual Results:
- Instruments complains that the script has changed behind its back, and you must click "Revert" to get the new script's contents.

- Not a regression.


From Apple:

There are no plans to address this based on the following:

The Automation instrument has been removed from Instruments. Please migrate tests over to Xcode's UI Testing infrastructure.
