Possible Duplicate:
Circular duplicates in the close review?

In the "review close votes" list, this question:

Examples of code that compiles but executes differently in C versus C++

is marked as a possible duplicate of this question:

Can code that is valid in both C and C++ produce different behavior when compiled in each language?

Which has already been closed as a duplicate of the first question.

Suggestion: Once question A has been closed as a duplicate of question B, any "close as duplicate of Question A" votes (on question B) should disappear...

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

It's been closed as 'Not constructive', I don't see where it was closed as an exact duplicate. – George Stocker Oct 16 '12 at 0:33
@Bart - nope.. not an exact duplicate of that one. Though if I did vote-to-close(dup) it does give me a warning about duplicate-loops. – Taryn East Oct 16 '12 at 0:34
@GeorgeStocker - if you go to the page for Question B it lists: "Possible Duplicate: Examples of code that compiles but executes differently in C versus C++" Perhaps you're right it wasn't closed for that purpose - but it's clearly been voted on as being a dup of Question A - such that when I tried voting to close(as dup) it caused a "we don't like duplicate loops here" warning. – Taryn East Oct 16 '12 at 0:36
@TarynEast Could you then clarify (perhaps in your question) how this is not a duplicate? In my view, even after reading it again, you ultimately make the exact same feature request. – Bart Oct 16 '12 at 0:38
@Bart - just re-read that one... sorry, you're right it does look the same. – Taryn East Oct 16 '12 at 0:39
Hmmm. can't vote-to-close(dup) on my own question... – Taryn East Oct 16 '12 at 0:41

The questions are exact duplicates.

I've merged them, with the older question being merged into the newer question. The older question has a mere fraction of the views and the votes the newer question does.

I've kept the newer question closed (this time as not constructive, which was the close reason for the old question, instead of it being a duplicate) to reflect the state of the questions before they were migrated.

If the community wishes to re-open the question, that's up to them.
