Found a strange case in this question.

How did it happen?

This behavior is the result of a merge operation.

bdonlan's answer originally appeared under this question (posted May 16 '09 at 2:05), which was then merged into the newer one.

How did you know that? In the earlier question there is a link, but in the later question there is no. – VisioN Apr 15 '13 at 10:38
@VisioN - See the revision of the answer – hims056 Apr 15 '13 at 10:38
OK, yeah. That was the place I accidentally haven't checked. Thanks! – VisioN Apr 15 '13 at 10:39
