Tech:Session got mixed up
The strangest thing happened when I tried to view the Hyderabad page on en. I don't think I can replicate it now, but I am filing a bug report because it might be a potential security issue. Let me see if I can explain the sequence.
So what seems to have happened is that for that brief moment, Wikitravel went crazy and thought that I was the anonymous user who was editing it. Probably the anon user had previewed his/her change, so the system knew what the edit summary was.

When it happens
What should happen
How to fix it
What I think happened is that the server cached the page in its "edit" action. One of the global variables I used to check for this disappeared in 1.10.0, and apparently the check I put in to replace it didn't work that well. So I've gotten a little more aggressive, and hopefully that will fix the situation. I'm also clearing from the cache all the files that were cached that way; they should be gone in about 10 minutes. --Evan 11:47, 28 June 2007 (EDT)
