update multiple records strange toggle effect behaviour

update multiple records strange toggle effect behaviour

It seems I can't figure out what's wrong with my setup, at least I am lost.

I want to update a mysql table like

`stories_id` mediumint(6) NOT NULL auto_increment,
`categories_id` mediumint(6) NOT NULL,
`stories_language_id` tinyint(2) NOT NULL,
`stories_header` varchar(250) collate utf8_unicode_ci NOT NULL,
`story` text collate utf8_unicode_ci,
`sort_order` mediumint(6) NOT NULL,
`zuletzt` timestamp NOT NULL default CURRENT_TIMESTAMP on update CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
PRIMARY KEY (`stories_id`)

OK, it looks simple.

I want to update only the sort order so I create a form with a submit button, provide a table row with a textfield, bind it to the recordset, apply repeat region according to the recordset: Everything works fine until here.

Applying the multiple update behaviour shows a very strange effect:
Since I do not provide a redirect, I let the field "Go to (optional)" empty and let "pass original querystring" unhooked.

If I update a sort field by entering a different number and press the update button, after the page reloads, the old entry is here again. But looking up the database with phpmyadmin shows: Update with the new entry was succesful!

If I hit the update button again without touching the formfield, the new, updated entry shows up in the form but the database entry has the old value again! If I click the button again, the whole game repeats itself. It toggles the form entry / database entry each time I click the update button.

The best thing is still to come.
This is the start of the WA code:
// WA DataAssist Multiple Updates
if (isset($_POST["aktualisieren"])) // Trigger
if (!session_id()) session_start();
$WA_loopedIDField = array("WADA_RepeatID_stories_id");
$WA_connection = $lil;
$WA_table = "stories";
$WA_redirectURL = "";
$WA_keepQueryString = false;

Now, if I replace the lines

$WA_redirectURL = "";
$WA_keepQueryString = false;


$WA_redirectURL = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
$WA_keepQueryString = true;

The "Update Multiple Records" server behaviour disappears from the Server Behaviours panel but the page works like expected.
No toggle effects anymore.

I am sitting for hours now but don't find a solution...
can someone please tell me whats going on here?

Also, one should mention that one has to SELECT the unique key column in the Recordset, otherwise this behaviour does not work at all. I first thought it is not necessary because there is this this "automatic bind" message.
