Entered hours were gone upon clicking on SAVE button.


Posting this again under issue tracker - sorry this is my first time posting at codeplex -
I did try to install the application on a test environment. We are using Project server with SP1. I did followed the guide - below are the steps I did for your reference.
For testing. I tried to create a new timesheet, entered total of 40 hours for the week, Save the timesheet. The screen refreshes and all entered hours were gone. I did try to enter the hours again but this time clicked on Save and Submit, the usual comment box appeared , the screen refreshes and again all the entered hours were gone. If I enter the hours again and clicked on the Recalculate button, the no of hours are retained.
I then checked the tsautostatus table, and the table is empty. Since I'm a team member and also the project manager, task updates are also empty. - meaning no updates were sent to the pm.
Please help me. I really want to make this work. Thanks.

I am also having the same problem with this release. To add some additional information - when I hit the save button, the job immediately goes into the cancelled state in the Queue. I checked the server logs and there was no evidence of an error.

I took off the event handler OnUpdating and now everything seems to work fine.
