I get the "you have new messages" link when I've
already seen them, under mozilla 1.5.  Clearing my
cache does not help, nor does hitting reload, or
setting the cache to compare on each view, so it almost
has to be a server problem.

This is a known problem; the root cause is not yet certain, but
immediate cause is that the user data stored in the cache is 
sometimes not cleared when the notification marker is cleared
the database. The wiki continues to use the cached data, which 
now incorrectly lists a new messages notification flag; the flag
doesn't subsequently get recleared because you see the cached 
copy of your talk page and it doesn't get to the part where it
the flag.

* really force a page reload on your user talk page (ctrl+ or
reload should work in IE/Mozilla)
* watch/unwatch any page
* log out, log back in
* edit your talk page
Comment 1 Zigger 2004-10-30 16:06:47 UTC
Just happened for me on while
browsing anonymously, but the messages were for a different IP address which is
20 hops away.

Possibly relevant bits from the bad page source:
  "<div class="usermessage">You have <a href="/wiki/User_talk:"
title ="User talk:">new messages</a>.</div>"
  "This page was last modified 01:27, 25 Oct 2004."
  "Served by in 1.47 secs."

From the later reloaded page source:
  "This page was last modified 01:27, 25 Oct 2004."
  "Served by in 1.18 secs."
