... and to anyone who says that PerlMonks does not log you out and allow your post to go as Anonymous Monk, leaving you with no ownership and no recourse ... well, it just did.   Again.   :-[   The post to which this is a reply, used to be my post.   So, if you like, here’s your substitute downvote-target.

    Someone else suggested this already, I repeat: a good software dev would be able to write up a bug report for this showing how to repeat it with exact steps and maybe Network/HTML trace from the debug console of any modern browser. It would be easy enough to turn that on persistently until the bug happened again. Then submit the relevant portion of the log (with passwords scrubbed if present) to pmdev.

    I have no idea if this is a real bug or just user/user-env error and neither do you. Since itís never happened to me and Iíve never seen anyone else mention it, I lean toward the latter.

      It actually is curious, because I was able to Update the post several times.   But then, I was not-logged-on, the post no longer belonged to me (?!), and it was Anonymous.   I can’t offer further explanation.   It is most peculiar behavior, really, because IIRC the post actually became Anoymous.   Anyhow, fairly OT to the present topic.

    So where are the technical details sundialsvc4 ? What good is it to say "it happened again I'm special downvote away" if you're really interested in correcting the problem?
