Flow: incorrect topic timestamp
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

This topic was started on March 24, according to the history page
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia_talk:Flow/Developer_test_page&workflow=rrkh9dial4kvq2oj&action=history

but on February 9, according to the Topic Titlebar mouseover.
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia_talk:Flow/Developer_test_page&workflow=rrkh9dial4kvq2oj

There's a similar glitch in
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Talk:Sandbox?workflow=rrkvm14ffnu3cmx4 "Testing 1 2 3": the titlebar timestamp says 30 January but its history says the whole thing started 24 March, and that seems to match its position in the Flow board.

I've been able to reproduce this behaviour on my local machine.

Seems to be a cache-issue. Workflow timestamp is correct in DB. With $wgFlowUseMemcache set to false (using HashBagOStuff), the timestamp is also correct.

Could be related to bug 63617

Backport fix DB-to-cache pipeline for mw.org

https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/125018

The backport to 1.23wmf21 seems to fix this on mediawiki.org; mw:Talk:Sandbox's "Trying a thing!" used to be timestamped "2 months ago", now it's "25 days ago". The fix will ride the train to enwiki on Thursday.
