When voting to close, the duplicate header does not show up in the preview:

Shows a (closed) question in the off-topic preview without the duplicate header.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Find a closed (as duplicate) question (f.e. this one)
  • Find another question
  • Vote to close as duplicate
  • Place the link into the search box
  • See the result

Why is this a problem you ask? First, it's confusing when the title and then lower bar say it's duplicate but the header is missing. Second, I can't follow the duplicate-chain to the canonical question from within the close-dialog.

No questions were closed in the making of this question.

As of the next build the duplicate notice will show up, as it does on the question page itself.
