What are tag synonyms? How do they work?

A moment ago I was trying to edit the tags in this question.

I edited out the tag, and tried to replace it with the tag. However when I saved my edits and viewed the question anew, the tag was actually replaced by the tag.

I'm not sure what's happening here. Is it a bug in the system, or am I doing something wrong?

Makes sense, but this raises a whole batch of new questions. –  John Dibling Dec 11 '12 at 14:58
    
@JohnDibling You could ask them separately, or if they're closely related, edit them into your question –  Asad Dec 11 '12 at 15:00
    
@Asad: I'm going to ask them seperately, but I need to gather my thoughts on it first. –  John Dibling Dec 11 '12 at 15:01
    
@JohnDibling Yeah, I have no comment on the validity of the synonym or anything like that. It was apparently suggested on June 9th of this year. –  Tim Stone Dec 11 '12 at 15:06
