Summary0006054: Material Editor: image browser's "cancel" button rewrites the material source text
DescriptionClicking "cancel" in the material editor's image browser restores the original entry in the image path field (unless 0006032), but still seems to put the material source text through the parser and flags the material as having an unsaved change. This is problematic because this can lead to the loss of comments or alter keywords, as pointed out in earlier tickets.
Steps To Reproduce1) Search for "rough_dirty" > select textures/darkmod/metal/flat/tiling_1d/rough_dirty01.
2) Click on "Unlock Editing" and then "Save Material" to save the copy.
3) Expand the material source text.
4) Click on one of the "..." buttons next to the map fields in the Basic tab to open the image browser.
5) While looking at the material source text, click on "Cancel". The source text is rewritten and the material is flagged as having an unsaved change.
TagsNo tags attached.

Same problem as in 0006038.

The problem here is that clicking "Cancel" while selecting an image still counts as a change that causes a rewrite.

It's not even clicking cancel, it's opening the browser itself is causing a new definition generation. Opening the Image browser will select the current item in the list, which is an "item selected" event which in turn causes a change signal to be fired to the Material Editor's map entry box => material gets a new map expression assigned and the text is re-generated.

In 3.1, opening the image browser doesn't regenerate the text, but clicking 'Cancel' still does.
