Not WYSIWYG sometimes

Recently, it occurred a few times that I fixed a typo in a comment, but the preview showed the older comment with the typo and after submission, the older comment got displayed.
Can't re-create it on will.

Chrome, Windows.

    Thanks, AKALib.
    Several people have come forward with a report of it happening. I'm ticketing that issue now for further investigation toward a fix.

    Hi again. You may be familiar with the problem I'm about to explain.

    I've not been able to replicate the situation. I am wanting to make sure that I have the same process to follow.

    Are you saying that you have used spellcheck to make the correction? Or are you making the changes manually?

    And are you seeing the correction "take" in preview mode, after you've made them, but then seeing the earlier, wrong content when you submit the comment?

    Thanks for clarifying!
