Why there are 2 separators between tools and chat?

enter image description here

the view-source shows:

                  <span id="hlinks-nav">
                  <a href="/users/logout">log out</a>
 <span class="lsep">|</span>
<a href="/tools/">tools</a>
 <span class="lsep">|</span>

 <span class="lsep">|</span>


(Can't see it in other sites, but that's probably I don't have enough rep elsewhere :) )

It's for pending edits from low-rep users waiting for approval. When there are edits to approve a number appears there and clicking this takes you to a page where you can see other users edits and choose to accept or reject them.

Indicator in top bar for pending edits

    @DennisWilliamson Indeed, this is a bug.
