#3757: Uploads to post-new.php don't get associated with the post

 If a post has already been saved, using the inline uploader works as
 expected: the uploaded file is associated with the post. (You can tell it
 has worked, because the file appears in the uploader's "Browse" tab when
 editing the post, that is, when viewing a post with /wp-admin/post.php,
 under the "Manage" tab.)

 But using the inline uploader before it has been saved (that is, when
 editing it with /wp-admin/post-new.php, displayed under the "Write" tab),
 uploaded files DO NOT get associated with the post, although they do get
 uploaded. (There is no "Browse" tab in the uploader, just a "Browse All.")

 This is unexpected behavior and a change from WP 2.0.x. It's a significant
 problem anytime you need uploads and posts to be associated with one
 another (as many image plugins do, for instance). Naturally, the work
 around is to save first before uploading, but even so simple a work-around
 as that shouldn't be necessary, imho.
