U4-9309 - Audit trail states wrong user

This has happened on different occasions and appears to be quite random.

One page was listed as unpublished by a user that was off work.

If a user accidentally used the 'Upload' button after clicking on 'Link to file' it puts documents straight into the root folder and the audit trail lists the admin account as the user for the event.

When an existing page was copied by a user, the audit trail listed the creator as the admin account and the associated media folder creator was listed as a different user.

A user created a page and the trail gave a different user as the creator, until it was re-saved.

The copy node issue was fixed in U4-8516 and released in 7.11 and I have tested this as working.

Tested unpublish and confirmed current user is used Tested create page and confirmed current user used as creator before save & save/publish

Created a media item by uploading from the picker dialog and confirmed media item is audited as created by current user

Pull request submitted to fix a related issue which is that when you do a copy, the copy shows on the original (source) node, but with the writer as the user, not the person who initiated the copy
