I've been seeing this strange behavior on the starred list in the Tavern. It could be because, well, it's The Tavern, but...

I saw this same problem in Gaming's The Bridge earlier today. The went away when I reloaded the page. Actually, now that I look again, I'm seeing it now in The Bridge. – Powerlord Feb 23 '11 at 20:06

IE8 on XP, saw this in a few rooms on chat.stackexchange. Only in live chat, though. Not in the room's info pages. – Grace Note Feb 23 '11 at 20:12

It's not only Chrome. I'm seeing this in FF (3.6.13), too:


I noticed this first a few days ago. It comes and goes. I see it nowhere else on the SE sites.

Are you seeing it with fresh Javascript? I.e. younger than about 18 hours? – balpha Feb 24 '11 at 15:10
@balpha: When I saw it again I searched meta for "NaNd" and added this answer. – sbi Feb 24 '11 at 21:18
