Adam Lear ♦ claimed that this bug was fixed yesterday, and it seems to still persist. Someone suggested that the newer post be a duplication, but I don't agree with that. I know this is a rare uncommon case, yet I'm curious about the community's idea.

Possible reasons that may re-create a similar case:

  • A dirty fix was performed, and wrong content keeps being generated by faulty programs.
  • An old, really-fixed bug is re-introduced somehow.

This post should be useful for all the cases above

I agree with Shadow Wizard's comment; ping the relevant Stack Overflow developer/employee who indicated that the bug has been solved, but only if it's reasonably 'fresh'.

Sometimes, completed bug reports are (wrongly) closed with the following reason:

The problem described here can no longer be reproduced. Changes to the system or to the circumstances affecting the asker have rendered it obsolete. If you encounter a similar problem, please post a new question.

(emphasis mine)

While that isn't the case here, it does indicate that it's perfectly normal to create a new bug report if a bug resurfaces after a while.
