That could have been messy ...

Recently, I've been making updates from the LJ portal page - not because I had problems with the new update page, I just liked having the statistics, birthdays, and random LJ page there. I've noticed one little problem with it, though. If you select the "Preview" option, it doesn't actually show you the preview, but takes you to the normal update page (update.bml), with all of the details filled in (mood, music, icon, etc) - except that the security setting got changed back to public, when I'd set it to friends-only on the portal page.
That could have been mildly unfortunate in this case, although I probably would have noticed soon, but I can imagine not noticing and just hitting Update and possibly being very embarrassed later.
