(Is there really no Wikipage to discuss this first

before submitting a report?)

In
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump#The_B-Movie_Bandit
the possibility was raised, that the suspected
vandalism may be in fact a software problem which let
some users not see the newest version. And let them
overwrite it with an edited older version.

Now there was a similiar case in [[Unicode]], but not
with an anon, so you can ask him, what really happened,
see [[User talk:Bletch]]

On the talk page Bletch said "I am not sure if it Wiki's fault of a simple
oversight on my part". Since the only other evidence for this bug is speculation
about an anonymous vandal, this bug seems too vague to work with. Unless there
is a way to reproduce this bug, it should be closed IMHO.

Could have been accident or temporary caching problem which has since been resolved. Resolving as
WORKSFORME since there is no further report of similar.
