I accidentally resubmitted a completed merge. How can I get rid of it?

Oops.  My page reloaded and I accidentally proposed a merge of Smith-26785 and Smith-22997 after the merge had already been completed.  How can I get rid of the pending merge at the bottom of the page?

Hi Michael,

So that's how these happen! I'd seen a couple instances like this but hadn't taken the time to debug it.

Right now our web form won't allow these to be removed, so I'll need to either do it manually or change the form. Just ignore this for now and I'll clean it up.

Thank you for the response.
I dont know if that is the only way that happens but when I merge say 12 profiles together, it often leaves 2-3 pending merges at the bottom that when yolu click them, they redirect to the final LNAB... sometimes even if yhou mouse over it already says the final profile.
Hey Lindsay. Is that still happening? I hope not. I thought we fixed it. Send me a list of any ones you find. I can fix them manually, and if it's still happening, try to find out why.
I dont know at what point you "fixed" it, but its been a regular thing... Ill keep an eye out for that and more "merges in process by another user" but I learned I can work around those myself by setting as unmerged matches and then re-initiating the merge.

You know me... Im a bug finder!
