on the frontpage(other pages i checked works fine) of there is a feed link which generates id with unnecessary string " test"

<div id="feed-link">
    <div id="feed-link-text test"><a href="/feeds" title="the 30 most recent questions"><span class="feed-icon"></span>recent questions feed</a></div>

id="feed-link-text test" why the "test" is given? shouldn't it be id="feed-link-text" or does it have any use?
