Description Luna Santin 2007-01-14 11:51:04 UTC
Not sure how to describe this. Sorry if I'm a bit roundabout.

I tried out the new cascading protection on, and everything
seems to work well enough, except for one thing: usually, when I protect a page,
the edit shows as on-top, but when I use cascading protection, it doesn't.

In fact, an *older* edit still shows as on-top. Page history shows the correct
order, but when looking at a specific diff, the newest version (when
protecting/unprotecting) will still show a "next diff" link, which appears to
compare against the most recent non-protection edit.

Example from [[w:en:Special:Contributions/Luna Santin]]:
# 03:41, January 14, 2007 (hist) (diff) m User:Luna Santin/sandbox (Unprotected
User:Luna Santin/sandbox: Testing unprotection)
# 03:40, January 14, 2007 (hist) (diff) User:Luna Santin/sandbox (wonder what
happens to history if we edit while cascade-protected) (top) [rollback]
# 03:39, January 14, 2007 (hist) (diff) m User:Luna Santin/sandbox (Protected
User:Luna Santin/sandbox: Huh, is it borked? Edits not showing on-top

Notice that the wrong edit is labelled on-top. The full page history still shows
the correct order, but when viewing diffs, this causes a few odd problems.

Does not appear to be limited to the use of cascading protection; I see this
when making non-cascading protection.

Fixed in r19228.
