Description Sérgio 2005-05-25 03:10:27 UTC
Sometimes, if a user edits an article that just had been edited by a anonymous,
he becomes the author of the edit by the anonymous person (ip address).

In the case of the article Emilinha Borba @ WP:PT, a ip address ( the
article (at 02:10 UTC), and then when a user (at 22:11), s/he become the creator
of the article, and the edit to appear at the history of the article.

This is a multiple page creation bug, probably due to database lag at the time.

In the next major revision the indexes are updated so this cannot happen; this will be updated within 
a few weeks when we upgrade.

I've fixed the particular page mentioned manually in the database.
