http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2064329/why-python-does-not-allow-hyphens

I modified this question's tags to correct "pyhon" to "python". However, in the revision history, it shows that I changed the title. There is no indication in the revision history that the tag was changed.

I simply clicked on "edit" on the question page, scrolled straight down to the tags, changed the tag, and clicked Save Edits, without modifying the title field.

Maybe you can test if a trailing backtick in a title is somehow removed by either your browser or the server? (The tag maybe having been changed by the author within the 5-minute window, while you were trying to do the same?) – Arjan Jan 14 '10 at 16:04

Er... what? According to revision history it was always tagged [python].

ah, I see -- as noted in the comments, the original author edited it within the 5 minute grace period after posting. Edits in the 5 minute grace period do not count as "official" edits.

Maybe unless the author changed it within 5 minutes after posting, while Jeff (not you) was trying the same? 1st revision 13:27:44, Jeff's 13:31:38, another from the author at 13:32:51. – Arjan Jan 14 '10 at 16:07
    
Ahh, didn't realize there was a 5 minute grace period. That would explain the disappearing backtick too. – Jeff Jan 14 '10 at 18:17
