What if I hit the daily rep cap and THEN get downvoted?

This is my rep page(sorted by post) for May 10: enter image description here

Sorted by time:

enter image description here

As you can see, on May 10, I hit the cap. But, I still have 198 instead of 200 rep for the day. I remember that the day rep was at 200 for me pretty much the whole day, and then later it came down to 198 without one of the above-cap-rep recomplensating for it.

I want my Epic badge! ;-)

Looks like a bug..

P.S.: enter image description here

Also, I ran a recalc already.

You only get recompensated for downvotes if the upvote occurs after the downvote occurred. If you get a downvote after hitting the reputation cap, you still lose the 2 reputation, which can then be gained back with another upvote that day.

Shouldn't this be in the rep faq ? – Manishearth May 14 '12 at 3:31
It probably should be. It follows the same premise as the "you can't be downvoted below 1 reputation" thing. Get a bunch of downvotes at 1, then get an upvote, the downvotes still don't count. :) – animuson May 14 '12 at 3:32
