That page is in fact marked new, so it's not a problem in

The problem might be connected with database lag. If, after saving a new page,
the user gets the "there is no text on this page" text, goes back and saves
again (and again...), there are multiple copies of the article in the database,
and the edits are _all_ marked as new pages (see screenshot of todays RC on

See also Bug #1209, #1239, and possibly others.
Comment 4 JeLuF 2005-06-20 21:21:47 UTC
We now have a UNIQUE index on (cur_namespace, cur_title), thus it's no longer
possible to have several entries in the DB for the same article. This should
also solve the issue of multiple 'New' edits. 

Please reopen if these things still happen.
