Linked account +100 rep bonus also applied to account with 200

today(2011-08-22) I earned only 10 points on reputation on, but later in the evening my score increased by 100 more points without any reason visible in the reputation history.

Is this a bug, a magic gift, or what ?

You joined User Experience today, and you had more than 200 points on Stack Overflow: 100 bonus on both sites!

Your reputation report will also list "rep from bonuses: 100" for associating accounts.

(You should also have received a top-bar notification for that, as far as I know.)
