Merging a question with itself probably shouldn't be possible. I tried rolling back to the original version, but that had no effect.

Argh, my head's spinning from the testing... – Andy E Jul 16 '10 at 12:35
@Andy: Imagine how long it took me to figure out what the problem was! ;) – Bill the Lizard Jul 16 '10 at 12:45
@Whaaaaaa? That's some bug. I'm curious though, what was the rationale for merging a question with itself in the first place? – Pops Jul 16 '10 at 17:25
@Popular Demand: There was a mod flag on that question asking for a tag merge. The wording might have been a little confusing, leading @Will to merge the question to itself. Either that, or idle curiosity would be my other guess. @Will wouldn't be the first one to experiment with the mod tools. :) – Bill the Lizard Jul 16 '10 at 17:37
@Bill: Just goes to show you can't trust anyone with a diamond after his name.... – Pops Jul 16 '10 at 17:59
@Pop: Now they think about putting it before the name ... – Ladybug Killer Jul 16 '10 at 19:29
@Bill: Are you able to manually unlock the question? – Jon Seigel Jul 16 '10 at 22:29
@Jon Seigel: Well now I just feel silly! Thanks. :) – Bill the Lizard Jul 17 '10 at 1:37
@Bill: You're welcome. :) – Jon Seigel Jul 17 '10 at 2:17

ah, OK -- we checked in a change that prevents self-merges.

Oh, darn... sorry about the time spent on this one. It didn't occur to me that merging and locking were so closely intertwined. – Bill the Lizard Jul 17 '10 at 3:40

I guess [status-by-design] is the best fit for this one. This is really a non-issue since the action is easily reversed by manually unlocking the question, as suggested by @Jon Seigel in the comments. Thanks Jon.
