When looking at deleted questions with many answers, and answers with the same score span page breaks, which ends up on which page changes all the time. And that's very annoying. Don't do that.

Jeff claims that it's already disabled for multi page questions, but that's clearly not true, so I'll tag this as bug, instead of feature request.

For example, refresh the following link a few times: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/2349378/new-programming-jargon-you-coined?page=8&tab=votes#tab-top (SO 10k only)

    Ah, if 10k only, then it's probably related to deleted answers, which was fixed earlier too, but might be back? – Arjan May 20 '12 at 13:39
  • No idea if it's specific to deleted answers, it's just that most of those many-answer questions are deleted. I observed this several times, and I think some were not deleted at the time. – CodesInChaos May 20 '12 at 13:43
  • Not being 10k (hence not being able to see deleted answers in non-closed questions either), I cannot reproduce this. Like for page 5 of this question that has 320 answers. (You can search for questions with many answers by using answers:300.) – Arjan May 20 '12 at 13:44
  • OK, can't reproduce it with that question either. It's also not related to historical locking, since stackoverflow.com/questions/8472/… doesn't exhibit the issue. So you're probably right that it's specific to deleted questions/answers. – CodesInChaos May 20 '12 at 13:48

This was fixed last week and I forgot to inform you about it.
