If you have its ReceiveFocus property set true and the datasources have
AnnounceFocus true, then the UpdateBar will indicate the state of the
dataset that currently has focus in the UI. So, if you have an Edit
pending on one dataset and then click into a control that's associated with
another editable dataset, you will see a "live" edit button pertaining to
the second dataset.

Could this be what you are observing? I always use this feature and
haven't seen any anomalies in edit button behaviour...edit and post buttons
correctly reflect the state of each dataset.
