Change in Time Remaining behaviour?

 When we upgraded from to 4.0.3 we noticed that when using the web client, if we create a new task with an estimate then the Time Remaining field is automatically populated. If we update the corrected estimate, the time remaining is also updated.

Is this a deliberate change or a bug? The Eclipse client does not do this.

 Hello James,
though I was not able to retrieve the exact work item that fixed this behavior, I would say that:
- in : time remaining is not automatically updated : not expected
- in 4.0.3: time remaining is automatically updated based on values entered (estimate, corrected estimate) : expected

The difference observed between the WebUI and Eclipse Client has been fixed in 4.0.4 with 
"Time Remaining" is inconsistent in web and eclipse client (267835) 

Hope it helps.

Thanks Eric.

Do you know of any documentation on estimates/corrections/time remaining? I couldn't find anything in the doc that was a good overview.
