I went to edit a comment a moment ago, and it completely doubled up the edit box.

A glitch in the matrix?

freehand double comment boxes

Confirmed - There are freehand circles. – random Jan 22 '10 at 7:48
ugh, twitpic can't get a link to the image itself so you can embed it in the question? Try next time. – Ether Jan 22 '10 at 7:49
@Æther - like I said, my mobile broadband won't like that. Feel free to download from twitpic, upload somewhere else, and change the link to an embedded img. – Marc Gravell Jan 22 '10 at 7:50
Which browser are you using? – Jon Skeet Jan 22 '10 at 8:02
@Jon - Chrome on win7, so I guess Jeff will give a "beta not supported" ;-p – Marc Gravell Jan 22 '10 at 8:34
I've seen this once with Safari 4.0.4 on Mac OS X 10.6.2 as well. – Arjan Jan 22 '10 at 8:43
@random, best Edit Summary ever! I found poetry inside the machine :D – brasofilo Aug 22 '14 at 23:41

I don't get quite the same effect - although I briefly thought I did, due to the "Add Comment" box still being present at the same time. I notice that in your picture the Add Comment box isn't obviously present - so I wonder if it's actually the same issue, but showing itself in a different form? (e.g. somehow your Add Comment button was renamed to Save Edits)

Personally I think the Add Comment box should be replaced by the edit box.

I'm using Chrome (35722) beta on Windows 7, by the way. Also happens with IE8 (still with the buttons being labeled differently though - so not quite the effect you're seeing.)
