During merging of works, there is duplicate items in the "Into/Target" field on user's "Open Edits" page, meanwhile on separate edits pages everything looks normal. See attached screenshot and edits pages: http://musicbrainz.org/edit/18115507 and http://musicbrainz.org/edit/18115605 The target work also looks fine (no duplicate information): http://musicbrainz.org/work/d6c394de-6bcb-3650-b018-f16b3842bc73
What's your browser ? I don't see those duplicate composer stuff (in my Opera 12).
This is not browser specific, and this bug is confirmed. No need for further discussion
My user page: http://musicbrainz.org/user/X-Pilot/edits/open Currently, the edits are in the beginning of the page
Digging into this issue a bit; looks like what's happening is our code to load writers and recording-linked artists gets run for each work merge edit on the page – meaning, in that case, since there's two merge edits into the same work, it runs twice. The code also isn't apparently smart enough to detect if those artists are already loaded, so it just ends up loading them again.
Seeing what I can do about it now...
The merge window for 2012-10-01 is now closed, so this will have to wait until 2012-10-15.
