A bounty for a question Yahoo! Finance API DOW expired about 24 hours ago. Now, the page says:

This question had a bounty worth +500 reputation from Peter that ended yesterday; grace period ends in 24 hours

Same page said grace period ends in 12 hours this morning. Is there a new rule about bounty grace period extensions, or is this a bug?

Update: The bounty grace period did end an hour ago. However the post was showing "grace period ends in 24 hours" about two hours ago, so I suppose this is still a minor bug.

@waffles: Another example of this behavior here‌​. After the grace period ended (24 hours after the bounty ended), the note reads: "This question had a bounty worth +150 reputation from shreyasva that ended yesterday; grace period ends in 24 hours" –  PengOne Oct 14 '11 at 20:02
    
Yet another example here: stackoverflow.com/questions/7850565/…. An hour ago it said "grace period ends in 1 hour", but now it says "grace period ends in 24 hours" –  Kimi Oct 31 '11 at 15:00
    
11/1/2011: Yet another example here: stackoverflow.com/q/7788341/120163 It said "grace period ends in 5 hours at several hours ago; now it says grace period ends in 24 hours –  Ira Baxter Nov 1 '11 at 17:25

11/1/2011: 10 minutes after previous comment... suddenly the grace period vanished and the bounty was awarded. Maybe the problem is something funny gets displayed when the grace period has zero hours left? –  Ira Baxter Nov 1 '11 at 17:32
