Merge Proposal glitch or something new? (Proposed a merge; rejected merge still there) [closed]

I proposed a merge for https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Harrison-8614 & https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Harrison-785 - they'd been in a rejected merge. After I'd proposed the merge, I realized that I hadn't been taken to the screen to remove the rejection first, so now they're both rejected and in a proposed merge. Did one of the recent changes make that step get skipped?

Liz, you have to remove the rejected match first. Otherwise they stay in limbo.  I removed the rejected match and reproposed the merge.

Thanks Jillaine. Whatever went wrong in the process with Arthur didn't in a later pair, which had been rejected but when I proposed a merge the window saying they were in a rejected match with the button to remove it popped up.
