There's no way around that. You either have to know that the field
contents have changed or you don't. Are you saying that you have a way
to tell whether the field contents have been changed when you receive
a closeField message? Without setting the same semaphore? And if you
want to implement an "undo" or "revert" feature you need to save the
original contents anyway...
