 [attachment:"wp_update_post.diff"] does solve the reported problem, but it
 also prevents any modification of post tags via the `tags_input`
 parameter, even if it's intentional.

 Something along the lines of [31359] seemed like it might work, however in
 practice it doesn't, since the `tags_input` value returned by
 WP_Post::__get()] contains tag names, and if they are the same, there's no
 way to disambiguate them at that point.

 I think the correct solution here would be to disregard the `tags_input`
 parameter if it's the same as existing post tags. That way tags are only
 modified if `tags_input` was explicitly provided, and is different from
 the existing tags.

 See [attachment:"45121.2.diff"].
