Description Dan Collins 2007-07-09 11:58:21 UTC
The diff http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wolfmother_%28album%29&diff=143459884&oldid=142928590 shows one change, the removal of a '}', however when loading both versions through the 'edit' link, I see other differences. The diff shows one change, however that change wasn't even made. Running a unix 'diff' shows this:

< '''''Wolfmother''''' is the first full-length album from the [[Australia|Australian]] three-piece [[Rock music|rock]] band [[Wolfmother]]. All four tracks previously released on the ''[[Wolfmother (EP)|Wolfmother]]'' [[Extended play|EP]] ("[[Woman (Wolfmother song)|Woman]]", "[[White Unicorn (song)|White Unicorn]]", "[[Dimension (song)|Dimension]]" and "Apple Tree") have been altered slightly from their original versions, re-recorded and released upon this album.

It's known that sometimes diffs screw up randomly.  They usually work correctly again when a sysadmin purges that page from the diff cache.  I don't think we know what causes the issue, do we?  A workaround would be to allow users to purge the diff cache manually, as with the parser cache.

Comment 4 Low Sea 2008-04-21 09:04:40 UTC
I came to report the same kind of problem between these two edits (before[http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=The_Secret_%282006_film%29&oldid=206919851#Tenets] and after[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Secret_%282006_film%29#Tenets]). The diff merely shows some text deleted but looking at the actual page much more was deleted including the header and some text for the next section. -- ~~~~

Duping to bug 9533.

Nothing seems amiss with current rendering of the above samples.

Next diff for the page given in comment 4 doesn't appear to have any problems at all.
