hmm, looks like a race condition on close. I cleaned up and we'll look into it.

edit: we identified a bug in our code that could allow this, and fixed it.


Looks like a race condition to me.

migrated to superuser.com by John Rasch (1), Dustin Laine (2), Kibbee (3), ar (4), Shiraz Bhaiji (5), martin clayton (6) 25 mins ago

(emphasis mine)

Apparently you and Shiraz Bhaiji voted to close at exactly the same time, and the system migrated it twice in near-parallel.

    Personally, I blame ar for sneaking in there with a two-letter username.

    This has happened before. I recall one that got up to 14 close votes and 10(!) migrations. (Was probably a different cause, then, though.)

  • @Roger: Yeah, I remember that one too; thought about looking it up, but like you, I assumed it was a different cause. EDIT: Alright, here it is: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/51307/…
