  • @m0sa I found this bug on Stack Overflow in Portuguese. Please make sure that site is also fixed. meta.pt.stackoverflow.com/q/2386/227

  • @utluiz the code is the same on all sites, once the fix is deployed, all sites would get it. Jan 22, 2015 at 15:18
  • @m0sa 6-8 weeks? (or did it turn out more complex than you thought? :-)) Jan 22, 2015 at 18:41
  • @ShadowWizard don't ask...

The bug was caused by the snippets code mirror script being loaded asynchronously, and our events handlers being attached in the loader's promise, which got them wired up in the wrong order each but the first time, when the script was actually loaded.

Fix is rolling out with build rev 2015.1.22.2987 on meta and 2015.1.22.2213 on sites.

    Thanks! I guessed it was something like this, but I gave up trying to debug. Minified code is too messy.
