Description Le Chat 2008-04-26 09:25:23 UTC
I don't know why or precisely when, but I'm seeing total nonsense in the text comparison for some edits. For example
Comment 1 Splarka 2008-04-26 09:30:09 UTC
Brion is debugging this (or was), note:

Comment 2 OverlordQ 2008-04-26 09:30:44 UTC
I'm not seeing the nonsense in the linked diff.
Comment 3 Le Chat 2008-04-26 11:38:46 UTC
Maybe it doesn't look like nonsense, but the changes reported at the top (the red text which has been allegedly added or substracted) are almost totally wrong. At least, that's the case on the version I'm seeing - maybe it depends on the server. I assume it's an instance of the problem mentioned by Splarka - I've seen other instances too.
