Actually, M$ Access does the same thing.  When a form (or query) 
is populated with the contents of a record, it no longer is 
changed within the database - only within the form (or query).  
It is only when the record is saved that there is any indication 
of change or deletion.  The only way to determine if the record 
in the form (or query) has been changed or deleted is to check 
that record in the database during the operation, which is not 
routinely done.
