    Description

      If a block has specific applicable formats defined, they can be removed from a course when the course settings are saved.

      What happens is this. Say I have a block with a specific applicable format set like:

      array('all' => false,

      'course-view-topics' => true);

      If I edit the course settings (for a topics format), and save, the block above will be deleted from the course. This is because when I save the course settings, I do it from a page called 'course-edit-topics', which is not in the applicable formats list. While this logically makes sense, I'm not sure it makes sense from a useability standpoint.

      The work around is to use 'course-*-topics', but this may not be what is actually wanted.
