Bug report #12007
Value map widget: shows the value of the "value" column instead of "description" if used in a already open table

In recent QGIS releases the value map widget allows users to fill the a column with the content if the "value" column of the value map table, and choose by the content of the "description" column. At the same time inside qgis the table of attributes shows the content of the "description" column (in old qgis releases it was shown the real content of the table, the "value", but this has changed).
The issue is that if the user open the table of attributes, then enter the vector properties and activate a value map, then using the widget in the already open table will not work as expected now, and after selecting an option from the combo box the content of the "value" table is used to fill the cell.
If the user closes and reopens the table then the cells are filled with the content of "description", but that is just confusing.
