Over the past few weeks I've been noticing a strange bug with WW - threads that run into more than one page duplicate posts on the subsequent page. (however, it might just be my particular setup)

For example, the PhPbb update thread:

[webmasterworld.com...]

...ends on message 41 for me, but onto page 2:

[webmasterworld.com...]

...the page starts at message 31, so there are 10 duplicate posts before I get to the "new" posts (42 onwards).

In my system preferences, I have "Messages per Thread" set to 10 (I don't recall changing system settings, so I guess they are at default, but I may have tweaked stuff ages ago).

Just thought I'd bring it up (cos I'm getting an eerie sense of deja vu when reading long topics! :P).

Although other quirks have occured when the Messages per Thread screen value is changed to something other than 10, havent seen the exact behavior you describe. Does this only happen on the example thread you gave?

No, I've seen it a few times lately (I tend not to read stuff that goes onto multiple pages though).

Random bugs are the worst kind 8-(

Have you tried values other than 10 on the same message?
