      Description

      I've have read the http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-30885 and i agree, its a nice thing to have, but i've found a problem with that behaviour.

      When quiz is set to be in a secure window and with a timelimit and When time expires is set to submit answers automatically, then answers are not beeing submitted automatically, instead the student is beeing asked for confirmation to navigate away from page.
      If the student chooses to "Stay on page", then answers are not submitted and student gets extra time to modify answers.
      Also i noticed, that if student stays on page, changes answers and submit the test in 1-2 minutes after the time is up, then answers are still saved luckily, but if student stays on page for more than 2 minutes(keeps the window open for 5-10 minutes) and then submits, then answers are not saved and basically everything is lost also the attempt.

      It seems that this has been integrated from beginning of October and since that we have had many students who used that option and lost their attempts and answers.
      This happens in Moodle 2.3.2+(20121101) with the latest weekly updates.
