Lightroom 4.4RC: "metadata needs to be saved" status not cleared by saving metadata.

- I just saved metadata (and it *was* saved, presumably properly)

(win7/64, all file formats)

Doesn't always happen, just sometimes...

Note: comparing catalog settings to those in xmp on disk, after saving metadata:

The photo is PV2012, but the differences are in PV2010 settings - maybe that's why it won't clear?

OK, so this is easy for me to recreate:

1. Start w/ PV2012 photo.
2. Switch to PV2010.
3. Make an adjustment that is not common with PV2012, e.g. point curve. (yes I know they both have a point curve, but they have different names in the develop settings, and catalog).
4. Switch to PV2012.
5. Try to save metadata.

Metadata status won't clear.

Should be easy to fix now, right?
