Bug fix, if complete/cancel wasn't pressed when editing a reservation and instead a new reservation made this could cause reservation details to get muddled. Steps to recreate:
1) Make a new reservation and select Complete Reservation.
2) Make a second reservation but instead of pressing Complete or Cancel select View Reservations (this caused the reservation to not be fully saved).
3) Edit the first reservation and click Complete Reservation. (in some cases this then caused the two reservations to not be fully saved). Download this update to fix this issue. - Many thanks to Katie for this suggestion.
