On February 7, 2006 at 23:17, [[Commons:User:Roman pride]] was renamed; see
At the same time that the rename was happening, that user was editing. As a
result, an edit didn't get reattributed. See
One way to fix this problem is for [[Special:Renameuser]] to block the user from
editing while the rename is happening.
A better way to fix this problem is for Special:Renameuser to first change the
user's account, so that any new edits are attributed under the new name. Then,
get the list of the old contributions, and reattribute them. Apparently it does
those two steps in the wrong order.
I reset the bug summary, since preventing editing is just one possible solution.
Altered summary again. The old one misleadingly implied that the extension was
broken, when it's not, per se.
This would have been fixed in r23186.
