Bug report #12779
Attribute table edits appear not to be working after sort

- start QGIS and load a shapefile;
- open the shapefile attribute table and start an edit session;
- now SORT the attribute table on one of its columns: in my situation, I sorted a field to group all NULL values at the top of the table for ease of editing;
- edit one of the attributes in the table: in my case, I tried to give an attribute a value where it was NULL.
You'll notice that the attribute does NOT update, like if the value is not accepted. But the value is updated correctly, e.g. sort again on any field and look for the updated value: this action will trigger the update visually. The problem is that QGIS does not show the updated value right away. Probably because of the sorting. If you do not sort (step 3), there is no issue.
