Minor "you have already raised this type of flag" bug?

I flagged something as spam, then was only 90% sure I'd done so, so I clicked the flag link again to check. It showed me this: I had, of course, only raised the spam flag, not the offensive/abusive/...

Misleading text in flag dialog - "you have already raised this flag" when I didn't

Now, I raised "duplicate" flag. And I don't argue with the fact that "another reason" should be disabled. But the text should be different, as I didn't raise any "another reason" flags on this ...

No, I haven't already raised this flag (not here, anyway)

So for whatever reason I was going through stackoverflow looking for questions that had slipped through the retag/migrate net. I found this question, which clearly didn't belong on SO, and probably ...

When I vote to close a question and I open back up the dialogue window it will say You voted to close this question {time} ago which is fair enough. However, if I flag a post I will get told ...

After I joined the mob and flagged some spam on the Bitcoin Beta, for a poorly-understood reason, I went back to one of the questions I'd flagged and opened the flag dialog. There, I saw something of ...

Why does the flagging dialogue think I've raised a flag I haven't? [duplicate]
