I just improved a suggest edit and, when viewing the revision log of the question, I see the suggested edit after the improved one. I usually see it before since the improver do the edit after the suggester.

It's not a big problem but it might be a bit confusing.

Looks like Edit history may become out of order if suggested edit was approved with improvements is back and/or hasn't been rolled out yet in full. – Martijn Pieters Jul 18 '12 at 12:29

This was a bug introduced by ordering the suggested edits by creation date. A fix has been pushed and will be deployed soon.

On SU (rev 2012.7.21.3438), clicking "edit" for this question gets one the suggested version (from chx) in the editor, not the improved one (from Mokubai). The order in the revisions looks okay though. But even there, clicking "edit" next to Mokubai's version gets one chk's version, also shown in the dropdown then. Both "38 minutes ago" tooltips show the exact same timestamp, 2012-07-22 10:16:40Z. – Arjan Jul 22 '12 at 11:00

Ah, there's a new bug report now: Edit button shows source of older revision. – Arjan Jul 24 '12 at 15:47
