Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

I've seen this happen a few times recently: http://stackoverflow.com/posts/2923424/revisions

That question has ten close votes, with each vote after four causing a new "Post Closed" entry. I always assumed it was a race condition, where a couple people all close simultaneously, but this one shows new votes 15 minutes after the original five closed the question. How does that happen?

@Ran I saw the first, but Jeff seemed to indicate it was a temporary problem, unless it happened again to cause this. The second was caused by a bug fixed a year ago, so it can't be this –  Michael Mrozek May 27 '10 at 18:39
    
On the other hand, the first problem just happened again, so it clearly isn't fixed. That might be the cause of this as well –  Michael Mrozek May 27 '10 at 20:29
    
I also saw this some time ago meta.stackexchange.com/questions/42017/… –  Daniel Daranas Jun 1 '10 at 8:08

This is hopefully fixed - we had to make some changes in how we were locking questions during close voting.

Seems it might not have been fixed in 2011: stackoverflow.com/questions/8411348/… –  nneonneo Apr 21 '13 at 0:35
