I had posted a question and offered bounty of +50 on it. I guess it was around 7 hours left for the bounty to expire, and I received an answer. This was the only answer for the question, and the answer was also correct. But now after getting an answer, the question says "start a bounty". It doesn't show my offered bounty. Where has the bounty lost? How did it expire before the expiry time? I even accepted the answer as correct and upvoted the answer. But I am unable to offer the bounty to the person who answered the question.

This was my bug, which has been fixed. I've also refunded your bounty.
If you want to start the bounty again, I'll make sure that Syeda gets the award.
This indeed strange, bounty got expired exactly 7 hours before it should.
And the answer is posted few minutes after bounty is expired.
