Description Kevin Yin 2007-03-02 02:19:39 UTC,
from via (squid/2.6.STABLE9) to (

Periodic fault when submitting edits. Using Essjay's monobook, modified (see
User:-Slash-/monobook.js (or) css), FireFox, Windows XP, running an Apache
webserver 2.2.

== Recent occurrences ==

I recently installed AWB, and the problems started happening for me about 3 days
ago, approximately the time I installed it. The only other thing I did at that
time was attempt to install Ubuntu, and fail twice (it froze). One of the two
times, it was right before where it should have partitioned my hard drive. It
has been defragmented around that time, too, and I installed "Lyle in Cube
Sector", a buggy freeware game.

It has been occurring pretty rarely (4 times so far) and I've been editing quite
a lot. It also happened in AWB and IE, which pretty much rules out FF as the
problem. If it pops up again, I'll give the error message again. Perhaps it
might be a server problem (corrupted squid?).
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2007-03-06 18:59:21 UTC
Intermittent squid errors are not unheard of. One common source should now be
though, with better handling of overlarge log files which used to break the 32-bit
servers intermittently.

I'm going to go ahead and mark this FIXED, in the hopes that the 'above-average'
breakages are mostly dealt with by that.
