I was working on the suggestions 211 Duplicate sibling by father When i came across the profiles of Gaillard-30 and Gaillard-9. When I tried to propose a merge I received this message
The merge of John Gaillard (Gaillard-30) and John Gaillard (Gaillard-9) is already in progress by another user. If it is not completed in five minutes, you can complete it.
Coming back to the profile after even an Hour still comes up with the same message. I have had this issue on a copy of other profiles as well.
There is a way to clear it so the profiles can be merged but thought it would be best to advertise the bug so it can be looked into.

Yes the mothers are different yet this bug has happened on profiles where the parents are the same or there are no parents. I have just used this possible merge as the example. My point is that the merge profile screen is not able to be accessed because it is in process by another user. There is no unmerged match, rejected match or pending merges on these two profiles.
Looking at the mothers it seems that Dupre-50 is the aunt of Dupre-59 and should properly be disconnected from Gaillard-5 and the children of that marriage. There are notes on both Dupre profiles noting the confusion and lack of primary records.
