[Koha] forced to generate new barcode with EVERY item edit

Hello Everyone,

I've installed Koha 2.2.7 on a linux machine, and everything seems to be 
working well except for editing biblio items. When I edit the item level 
data, but the holding branch, for example, and click "Modify item" I get 
a message that I *must* enter a barcode. When I click on the field, it 
out generates a new one for me. I can't delete it and put in the old 
one. I've double and tripple checked, and I have autoCarcode off (0). I 
also tried commenting out the part of 
intranet/admin/cgi-bin/acqui.simple/addbiblio.pl that support 
autoBarcode. Nothing has changed, even after restarting apache and 
clearing my browsers cache.

Anyone have any ideas? I'd love to have a barcode autogenerated for new 
items, but I'd be ok with entering it manually every time so long as the 
barcode isn't forced to change whenever I edit item data.
