#19079: Auto Draft database insertion overflow

 When you just visit Posts > Add new a draft is inserted into database.
 If you leave the page without doing anything the entry remains unused and
 is inaccessible. This leads to a great number of trash database entries.
 You can just hit refresh few times and you end up with several auto
 drafts. This is obviously a weird behavior which I consider as a bug.
 Also, the save_post action is called because of that which is misleading
 when you think about process of data insertion.
 Even just after fresh install there are 2 drafts already in database!?
