Description Peter Gervai (grin) 2005-07-16 16:42:32 UTC
See the URL for example, these diffs were in this order. They were created in
the same minute. 

Page history show them in opposite order, which makes diffs selected from page
history look very funny (or stupid, depending on who does the look).

The comments for the diffs are in the right order, but the versions are mixed 
up, with the more recent one (currently the current revision) being listed

Comment 3 AySz88 2006-01-21 04:34:02 UTC
Recent occurance in the English Wikipedia:

In the [
title=Hurricane_Katrina&action=history Hurricane Katrina history], there are the 
following edits in this order:

(cur) ([
title=Hurricane_Katrina&diff=35917800&oldid=35917605 last])  00:38, January 20, 
2006 AySz88 (Popups-assisted reversion to revision 35895397) <br/>
(cur) ([
title=Hurricane_Katrina&diff=35917605&oldid=35917601 last])  00:36, January 20, 
2006 The pi pirate (Popups-assisted reversion to revision 35895397) <br/>
(cur) ([
title=Hurricane_Katrina&diff=35917601&oldid=35917446 last])  00:36, January 20, 
2006 (→Evacuation and emergency shelters) <br/>
(cur) ([
title=Hurricane_Katrina&diff=35917446&oldid=35895397 last])  00:34, January 20, 
2006 (→Synopsis) <br/>

The diffs show how the history is jumbled.  The 0036 vandal edit was applied to 
the article *after* the 0036 revert, but the history lists the revert and the 
vandalism backwards (it appears like vandal-vandal-revert-revert when it should 
be vandal-revert-vandal-revert).  Some discussion occured at 
Lupin's en User Talk], where Lupin, the creator of the Popups tool, agrees that 
it seems to be a bug with Mediawiki and not his own Popups tool.

Marking this bug as a duplicate of
Bug 2930: The edit history is wrong: It is based on timestamps while diff and
direction is based on revision id's
