InPlaceEditor cancel link causes IE6/7 to jump to top of page

Reported by Ryan | July 28th, 2008 @ 10:29 PM | in 1.8.3 bugfix release

When using the in place editor in IE6/7, there is a minor bug that represents itself when the user, after activating the in place edit, then clicks cancel. If the user has scrolled down the page, clicking cancel causes the page to scroll back up to the top.

I have been able to fix this bug by changing controls.js, line 526:

from link.href = '#';

to link.href = 'javascript:void(0)';

I currently have no easy way of hosting a demo site that will show this bug, sorry.
