I found a weird bug in SO today when I tried to down vote an answer that had completely wrong suggestion to solve an issue. Now, when I down-voted the answer, it had already been deleted (possibly by mods) but my screen did not refresh. And when I tried to post a comment reasoning the down-vote it failed.
There was nothing wrong till that point but the real surprise came after that when I found that the down-vote has caused a deduction of 1 reputation from my SO. The situation persisted until few refresh of my browser window and after that I found the original reputation point has been restored. However, when I logged into meta SO to report the issue, I still found that meta SO is showing that older wrong reputation point for SO. Please see the screenshots:

Now, I am really eager to know:
- Is this a known issue of SO?
- If not, where should I report it for resolution?
- What is the original status of my SO account?
Thanks in advance.
