What happens[edit]

Check this out[1]. Someone vandalised the en:Ulaanbaatar page and I reverted it. But the vandalism consisted of putting a huge amount of nonsense text. That seems to be crashing the "difference engine". Try comparing the vandalised version with any other version to reproduce the bug --Ravikiran 13:57, 9 Nov 2005 (EST)

This seems to have been fixed somewhere along the line. — Ravikiran 14:44, 4 May 2006 (EDT)
