I've seen this happen a few times recently: https://stackoverflow.com/posts/2923424/revisions

That question has ten close votes, with each vote after four causing a new "Post Closed" entry. I always assumed it was a race condition, where a couple people all close simultaneously, but this one shows new votes 15 minutes after the original five closed the question. How does that happen?

This is hopefully fixed - we had to make some changes in how we were locking questions during close voting.
