The mailing list suggested I add my post here, as a possible bug.

I just thought I'd share something that cost me some time to find why IE8 was the only browser that didn't work.

For a large form we use $resource to keep server and client in sync.
In the initial call I used:

Resume.get(function(resume) {
  $scope.resume = new Resume(resume);
  $scope.form = angular.copy($scope.resume);

On save I used:

$ = function(resume) {
  $scope.form.$save(function(resume) {
    $scope.resume = resume;

This works in all browsers, even IE9.

IE8 needed to have the object Resume instantiated on every save, because the method 'save' that $scope.form inherited from Resume got lost:
$scope.form = new Resume(resume);

I don't know why other browser didn't destroy the method, but IE8 did.

@Elexy would you mind providing a minimal reproduce scenario in a plunker ( I would like to have a look into it as it sounds really strange... Thnx!
