#11733 closed defect (wontfix)

receiving onSet notification on __isDirty attribute when reverting a JsonRestStore

I was testing testing the revert() method of a JsonRestStore? when I encountered a weird behaviour.

First, I connect a handler to the "onSet" notification of a JsonRestStore?:

dojo.connect(, 'onSet', this,
    function (item, attribute, oldValue, newValue) {
        console.log('store.onSet event triggered on attribute '+attribute);

Then, I change "prop1" of oldItem with the following code (no "onSet" event triggered this way):;
for (prop in newItem) {
    if ((newItem.hasOwnProperty(prop)) &&
        (prop !== idAttribute) &&
        (oldItem[prop] !== newItem[prop])) {
        oldItem[prop] = newItem[prop];

If the server answers with a error status (say 500), the store will revert its state and this will trigger an "onSet" notification on the unsaved attribute "prop1".

But I also receive an "onSet" notification for the "isDirty" attribute. I do not consider this as normal behavior.
