I mangled a convert to comment earlier and needed to undelete the post so I could redo it. When the post was converted a second time, I noticed it suddenly had a single undelete vote (it said "undelete (1)" on the link, and showed up in the 10k list). When I undeleted and converted it again it had two votes, and so on:

If I delete normally it works fine; it's only converting to comment (and probably edit, although I didn't try) more than once that leaves behind undelete votes

Alternatively, you're secretly building up an army of Nega-Mrozeks by undeleting them from non-existence, soon able to topple the world and conquer it under the banner of an angry glaring chess piece. This is no bug report, but a preview of the future's madness under your iron rule! –  Grace Note Jun 10 '11 at 14:32
    
@Grace I wish I could get this to work on close votes instead of undelete votes; I would make every closed post say I voted to close it five times –  Michael Mrozek Jun 10 '11 at 14:33

I'm also kind of curious why the space between revision blocks gets bigger as you go up the list –  Michael Mrozek Jun 10 '11 at 14:36

I don't believe this actually happens. –  Won't Jun 10 '11 at 14:45

Not until we break out some doughnuts –  Won't Jun 10 '11 at 14:45

Or at the very least set up some Earl Grey for our guests –  Won't Jun 10 '11 at 14:45

Don't you think they'd like some cucumber sandwiches as well? –  Won't Jun 10 '11 at 14:45

What a marvellous idea! Summon the chef to prepare the breadknife. –  Won't Jun 10 '11 at 14:45

We mustn't forget to include the jar jam to swill in our teas –  Won't Jun 10 '11 at 14:45

Yes! We can pretend we are all Leo Tolstoys and marvel at the wonder of life –  Won't Jun 10 '11 at 14:45

@Wont Well, you appear to be outvoted 7-1 –  Michael Mrozek Jun 10 '11 at 14:47

So... get it right the first time. ;) –  Kit Menke Jun 10 '11 at 14:57

Notice this also works for any post that gets deleted, then undeleted to convert to comment. I haven't tried with delete-undelete-delete proper. –  jcolebrand Jun 10 '11 at 15:03

This will be fixed in the next build. There is a vote cleanup function for old votes that wasn't running on this code path...and is now.
