Description Oliver Brown 2005-05-22 16:43:22 UTC
in, if you go to the "October 9" article and look at the article
history, you will find a recent edit by User:Missy Filan (05:31, 22 May 2005).
if you go to that user's userpage and then click on "user contributions", it is
empty. but from my watchlist, i know the user has made at least 3 other edits:
to articles "May 28", "April 29", "July 5" (all around the same time as the
"October 9" article).

Comment 3 River Tarnell 2005-05-22 16:51:04 UTC
two users had the same username, renamed the unused account. 
this probably shouldn't be able to happen.. brion? 
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2005-05-22 23:21:07 UTC
The user table does not have a unique index on usernames, which is really bad. There are 
thus a number of dupe accounts, probably created during heavy stress periods due to race 

That needs to be fixed.
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2005-06-05 13:46:12 UTC
Updater to sort out edits and update the index checked in to CVS HEAD for 
1.5. I've also run it on the Wikimedia sites to get that over with.
