Our vendor wrote a patch correcting a bug in acquisition notes 
management. (http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=9438)
But as Katrin Fisher pointed out, "the confusing behaviour has been 
there for a long while." So we want to be sure everybody agrees with the 
new behavior...

Here is a description of the bug :
When you create a new order in a basket from an existing record , Koha 
search for the field "notes" (300 unimarc, 500 marc21) in the record, 
and copy its content in the "notes" field of the order line.
But the note in 300/500 fields contains bibliographic information 
("contains index" etc), whereas "note" field on the ordeline contains 
information regarding the order ("very urgent" etc).
So the patch breaks the connexion between bibliographic note and 
acquisition note.
Does everybody agrees with this patch?
