I've seen the below on the users page a few times in the last day. If I'm remembering correctly it was consistantly the top 3 or four users in the third column. It looks like the top 3 display over the next bottom 3. Although that is not consistant. I've also seen it where just one of the users was over another user several spaces down. alt text

I was working on an XP box using IE8. I don't think I've seen it on my Win7 box, also running IE8 but I can't say that for sure. I do not see this every time but probably over half the times (maybe 4 or 5 times total).

This has now happened on my Win7 box with IE8 too. alt text

  • I have now seen this on Programmers.SE as well... this should be migrated to MSO.

  • Interesting, that one is marked as a duplicate but the link goes to a page not found. Looks like the original question was deleted.

Yes, we've seen this before. This is clearly a totally non-reproducible bug in IE8 (I've actually seen it fix itself if you just wait long enough).

However, I think I've found a workaround for this bug. Of course, with non-reproducible bug you can never be sure, but the bug didn't reappear even after a lot of clicking, so I guess it works.

This will be live in the next build.
