    You'll need to have been running an 8-14-2017 build of v3.17a
    at the time of importing of this message. And then wh
    vote, you should be able to select multiple answers.

    1: Yes
    2: I was able to submit a ballot with multiple answers
    3: I was only able to choose a single answer
    4: No, not at all

    I got 2 votes on this old poll today (one from echicken the other from MRO) - coincidence or was there a glitch, like maybe the poll was re-exported to DOVE-Net or something?

    Just curious,

    Two multi-answer polls from you showed up in my new message scan. I didn't look too closely, just voted because I thought you were testing something. Let me know if you want any details about those messages.

    Hm. Something's up then because I posted those polls a year ago. :-|

    Lately I've noticed some odd behavior that seems along those lines. I usually do message scans using my own message reader, but I hadn't seen this behavior before - When doing an unread scan of messages to me, sometimes it seems like my message pointers have been reset and I'll see old messages to me that were written a year or two ago, or longer.

    I recently broke the .ini writing functions here in CVS, but only for about 30 minutes, still long enough for some users/QWKnet-nodes to have their message pointers reset. I think that was the likely cause and the non-poll msgs were simply caught and filtered as dupes.

    The headers of the original and the duplicate are identical except for the following:

    "attr":8704,
    "attr":8192,

    "number":15190,
    "number":18131,

    "offset":5823,
    "offset":8764,

    "when_imported_time":1502775027,
    "when_imported_time":1535497683,

    "thread_id":15190,
    "thread_id":18131,

    "thread_first":15196,
    "thread_first":0,

    "votes":0,
    "votes":2,

    Nothing too enlightening there (especially not number, offset, when_imported).
