I can't repro this, and as only one user is reporting this issue, I can't justify the opportunity cost on spending more time on this. That said, I am kind of baffled as to how this is happening, so will explain some of the code logic, and maybe you will see something on your client side that could help to debug this (or force a repro).

I see the same diff output as you but what’s even odder is that I didn’t consciously modify the question body when I made that edit.
