I just answered a question, and I got a response from the OP along these lines: "I forgot, about X. But there is a new problem with Y now.".
What should be done in cases like this? I suggested to the OP: "If this is unrelated, probably ask a new question". But I'm not really sure if this is the right thing to do. Is it?
On the one hand: The first problem was a clear cut compiler error, the second seems to be something to do with what the program(mer) is trying to achieve.
On the other: It is the same program, which if I can gather correctly, is pretty small/manageable.
Will the community lose from having EDITs overwrite problems in this way?
This is the question itself (who's current form may change since me having asked this question).
