Description Matthew "mpt" Thomas 2006-05-21 04:28:31 UTC
title=Stem_cell&action=edit says "You are editing a prior 
version of this page. If you save it, any changes made 
since this version will be removed." But clicking Save 
without making changes results in no change to the article.

This error happens whether or not I'm logged in, and it 
still happens after making real changes to the article. It 
does not happen with other articles.

That's damn odd. Investigating...
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2006-05-21 09:14:59 UTC
There was a database inconsistency, with two of the slave 
databases recording an older current revision number for this 
page. The incorrect version was used for the comparison used to 
trigger the message.

The inconsistency may date to an April 15 database server crash.

I've corrected the database entries manually for this page, but 
it would be wise to check for other problems.
