Erroneous message from root

Got two messages from root in my Inbox:

*Click*... wait, what? marinersk didn't reply to my node, but to a node from thanos1983 - Re: Use of special character "*" to retrieve the contents that is.

Has the node from marinersk been reparented after the fact? Or is there a bug lurking somewhere in the code, or is there (shudder) a database inconsistency? Did anybody else experience such erroneous messages?

I'm keeping these messages in my Inbox meanwhile.

perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'

    marinersk actually did reply to your node by accident, considered his own node for reparenting, and it was reparented fairly soon afterwards.

    Update: node history for that node.

      Thank you, haukex. Relaxation is imminent.

      perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'

        My apologies for carelessly adding to your nonrelaxation quotient.
