Found the error in oxarticle.php at this function:

protected function _assignParentFieldValues()

PHP Code:
if ( $this->getArticleLongDesc()->getRawValue() === null )

should be:
if ( $this->getArticleLongDesc()->getRawValue() == null )

Best regards,

This bug is now back in version 4.5.5.
I've seen, that the getArticleLongDesc was refactorized.

Changing the if ( $sDbValue !== false ) statement
to if ( $sDbValue != false ) is solving this problem.

Are you compliant with me? Would be very great, if you
could provide an hotfix for this issue.

Better solution in my opinion is:

if ( $sDbValue !== "" ) {

We changed long description loading at all for 4.6.0 version. But your solution to change "if ( $sDbValue !== false)" statment to "if ( $sDbValue != false )" is simmilar.

The offered solution from coarsy will work and is similar to our fix. So the quickfix will not be provided by us.
As Vilma told, our fix will be released together with 4.6.0 version.
