Today, after another user pointed out to me a discrepancy with a tag that was supposed to be synonymed I dug a little deeper and saw what seemed to be an underlying problem, and not sure if it's site-specific or not.

I checked on Stack Overflow and found that when bringing up a tag synonym, it automatically only brings up the master tag.
Is this because it's a beta site. Is there a deeper explanation, and should it be this way?
