Why are completed merges dated "Nov 30, -1" showing in pending merges?

+10 votes
The first five merges on the list of pending merges at http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:BrowseMatches say they can now be completed but when you click compare they were all completed on Nov 30, -1.  Not sure if anyone has pointed this out yet.

Robert I reopened the question due to this still happens from time to time. I just saw one a couple days ago.

Hi Maryann,

Are you still seeing them?

This odd -1 date will appear when somehow the date indicator has been corrupted. It should be a rare. If it keeps appearing we need to investigate.

Chris I still see the completed merges in the pending  merges for the past few weeks. 

I see what you mean.

I cleared the handful that were clustered there. Post again if you keep seeing them.

Thank You Chris I noticed Edward Boykin is finally gone from my pending list. While I'm here. I had trouble responding here when I clicked on reply and Comment. Got this handy little box. But it was all green and no white field to reply. Thanks   Trudy left G2G came back and the glitch was gone.
I'm seeing this -1 date today on a compare; also, the merge does appear to have been completed, but the proposed merge still shows in the Pending Merges section of the merged-into profile.  I've emailed  info@wt with the profile.
It's happening again.  Gillet-122 and Gillet-53 were merged on the weird date of -1, but are still appearing on my 'Browse Matches' list from my watchlist.

Is the bug being fixed? (this is now 2 years after it was first reported)
