I was looking at an old question of mine, to which I've already accepted an answer. I discovered that unaccepting an answer, then accepting it again right away granted me 2 rep! This only works once per answer.

I don't know if a rep recalc will clear that rep gain or not.

I can't seem to replicate this on MSO. – Troggy Oct 8 '09 at 18:48

Was the old accepted answer your answer, and new accepted answer someone else's? – Joel Coehoorn Oct 8 '09 at 19:10
It was not my answer. I just tried it again with a different question and it failed. I also noticed that one of my rep gains from this bug disappeared, but one of them is still there. See stackoverflow.com/questions/308/… for a working example. – EndangeredMassa Oct 8 '09 at 21:14
