Description Craig Johnston 2010-03-27 16:58:12 UTC
I just got an edit conflict on a discussion page (talk:Earthquake) and the content in the upper text window did not include the conflicting text; it was the text from before the conflicting change. Based on the EC display, I could have pasted my text into the upper window and re-submitted, clobbering the change which triggered the edit conflict.
A few minutes later I ran into another edit conflict which worked correctly. In that case, the change which triggered the EC was about six minutes before my submit, so this problem may only occur during a brief window following the first submit.
Wikipedia is running MediaWiki version 1.16alpha-wmf(r64051).

Hi Craig! Sorry that nobody has taken a look at this report yet and gave feedback when this was actually reported so investigation would have been easier.
There have been a few more recent edit conflict issues, like bug 41353 and especially bug 42163, but the one that you've reported is not reproducible plus the software behind Wikipedia has changed a lot in the meantime.
Closing as WORKSFORME for the time being.
