I haven't been able to pinpoint how it happens, but having occured 3 times now I figured I'd least send a heads up:

Every once in awhile when saving an edit a get the message that someone else, Main.nobody, edited the topic while I was and the two have been merged. When going back to the topic many of the items have been duplicated. The duplicated items seem to be bullets and headings, though there may be others. Other than the dupes I don't see any differences.

Workaround: press browser back button twice, and re-save your changes.

Hmmmm - this sounds like something to do with a plugin. What plugins do you have installed? CC

This happens to me as well - TWiki:Main.AntonAylward

my, TWiki:Main.MattWilkie, plugins are (thanks for updating PLUGINDESCRIPTIONS% to show version number and disabled status!):

Hmmm - this sounds like it might be something to do with line endings. Are you both using RcsWrap?
Matt is using RcsWrap.

Another datapoint: last time it happened I pressed the [save] button and nothing happened, I was left sitting at the edit screen. I pressed [save] again and got the merge message. I can't swear that every time I've gotten the merge message I had to double save.

Also, all the topics this has happened on so far have been relatively old, meaning they haven't been edited when using Dakar.

OK, that's a good clue; can you try saving an old topic as a backup and then repeat your actions on the topic, see if you can reproduce the problem? Thanks CC
I'm using RcsWrap as well but I get this on more recent edits.

I think it has something to do with lease breaking. I'll pay more attention next time, but you usually see it 'after the event'. -- AA

If this happens again, please open a new report. CC
