When on the Bounties tab on a user's profile page, I noticed that no matter whether a bounty had been awarded already or not, it shows as an "open bounty".

Old bounties on user profile pages

Here is the page I was using in the screenshot: Tom Brossman

As you can see, that bounty has already been awarded:

Bounty already awarded

Here is the question I was using in the screenshot: Apply compressor effect to new podcasts automatically?

There was no "Open Bounty" banner on the page in sight.

This seems to be an issue with the tooltip only. I suspect it's just a template taken from the front page. The profile page itself correctly only lists these questions in the "offered" tab but not the "active" tab. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Sep 9 '12 at 13:33
Yep, it would seem that way. – njallam Sep 9 '12 at 13:37

This was an oversight when some code was re-used, they'll display "had a bounty" rather than "has an open bounty" where it applies after the next build.
