Asana Crashes/Disconnects when making a change to a "comment-only" multi-homed subtask

Briefly describe (1-2 sentences) the Bug you’re experiencing: I have 2 projects (Project A and Project B) where “task collaborators” are set up as “comment-only”. Project A has a task which is multi-homed as a subtask of a task on Project B. When the task on Project B is assigned to a user, they appear to have edit abilities on the multi-homed subtask. However, when they make a change to the subtask Asana disconnects or crashes.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create 2 Private Projects (Project A and Project B)
  2. Set “Task Collaborators” to “Comment-Only” on both projects
  3. Create a “Task 1” task in Project A.
  4. Create a “Task 2” task in Project B.
  5. Multi-Home the “Task 1” in Project A to Project B
  6. On Project B, move the “Task 1” to a Subtask of the “Task 2”
  7. Assign the “Task 2” on Project B to a non-member of the project.
  8. As the new owner of “Task 2”, edit the “Task 1” subtask of “Task 2” (e.g. make a comment).
