As summary says, please see

I did about 40 checks a bit ago on itwiki, not all are logged.
Comment 1 bdk 2007-11-01 21:27:28 UTC
This is still an issue, and afaik nobody figured out a distinctive pattern yet, which checks are permanently logged and which are not. It seems all checks are logged at first and stay in the log at least for some minutes/hours, but then random log entries disappear for some reason. 

Just one example to point out the importance of this bug: 
Yesterday we had an issue regarding de.wikipedia and a check that was run by a steward without any notice to the local community. This log entry is currently not visible any longer (as if the check was never made). 
As internal cross-wiki transparency within the group of users with CU access is a core feature (keyword: "checks and balances"), I'm increasing severity and priority for this bug now. 
Comment 2 Deskana 2007-11-24 00:05:50 UTC
This is definitely a problem. Me and another checkuser performed a series of checks which were logged, then a few hours later all of them were gone... then a few hours later, half of hers were back but all mine were still gone. It's really odd.

Fixed in r29527.
