I noticed this because Jon's tracker was showing +60 for this answer (+3 and accepted, so should be 45 rep):

From my rep report:

 2   2719060 (10)
 2   2719060 (10)
 2   2719060 (10)
 1   2719060 (15)
 1   2719060 (15)

The two accepted answers are nice and everything, but I don't think it was that good...

not really a duplicate, as it keeps happening after the "fix" –  juanformoso Apr 27 '10 at 20:50
oh come on you show-off! –  balpha Jul 29 '11 at 9:51

The duplicate vote has been deleted and I recalced your rep (I shudder when I have to recalc you big hitters' rep :)

Yes, there's a bug in the accepted answer routine - Benjol's two accepted answer vote requests were made at the same time which bypassed our checks for previous votes.

We're looking into how to better lock per-user actions; I have some crazy ideas, but I'm probably going to have to ask a question on Stack Overflow :)

We like to think of ourselves as inbuilt scalability tests ;-p Maybe a nightly script is a better way to go than locking? Just a thought... –  Marc Gravell Apr 28 '10 at 5:22

Related to Accepted answer reward +15 awarded twice!

I think Benjol did it again, probably he found a flaw in the system

In this post, He claimed that he could vote 10 times on a particular question and also mentioning about accepted answer.

I should have look his posts and start answering from now :-)

Interesting. Not least because it clearly isn't actually fixed. Unless the "fix" was, "ah, what's the chances of that happening again; pfff" ;-p –  Marc Gravell Apr 27 '10 at 7:38
I think Benjol got some kind of superpowers. –  Pavel Shved Apr 27 '10 at 8:17
@Marc - In my mind, that's a well known and valid fix for a shrug report. –  womp Apr 28 '10 at 5:49
