Summary0003560: (mantis) filter settings are randomly changing, has search entries i never entered
DescriptionSometimes I go to http://springrts.com/mantis/view_all_bug_page.php and wonder why the page only shows few/old entries.

Then I notice that in filter menu various filters are set.
After reseting filter everything is normal again.

Sometimes search field has stuff into it and I am sure never having searched for that. (see screenshot)
Maybe it is someone elses filters/searches?
TagsNo tags attached.

wrong project ;)

never had that problem, no clue whats wrong... (but yes, sounds like settings from others.)

does clear cookies & cache help?



when should i clear it? from time to time i delete cache/cookies like most users i guess.
just now there was some filter set again...someone looking for "transport" tag.



Still happens some times.
The set filters/searches are 100% certain not things that I set.

Just now there was results for 3DTrees, maybe from person who posted/read this?



There! The mantis ghosts are doing it again!
I do not not even know what a "minizip" looks like but there it is in my search field!
(see 2nd picture)

Could be a cache problem but on server?
So that sometimes one gets pages generated & meant for other users? replays site had similiar problem and there it was overaggressive caching...

afaik mantis has no caching. are you browsing through some proxy server maybe?

or some server-side session was "shared".



No proxy server and have seen it happen in different places. (different computers but also different towns and ISPs)
I think it has only happend when I first open the page and am not logged in yet.
Nobody else seen this happen? It is not so bad bug just spooky ;)



Not sure how to further "prove" this, so another ghost word from search field:
(maybe someone recognizes his search)



My previous comment about "glew" in search field was on:
2014-03-14 22:32

Now this report just got created:
on 2014-03-14 19:46

14 minutes after I had seen the "glew"
ghosts are real!


PixelOfDeath (reporter)

yes, like you asked knorke, I searched for glew today.



bla.jpg = someone's search for "area spherical"

"hardware minizip 3D Trees transport glew area spherical", the ghosts are not making much sense.


abma (administrator)

i assume its fixed!? if not, please reopen



no, it is not fixed.
Random search words and other filter settings still appear.

For example right now, before I logged in there was only one issuse displayed because the filter was set to only show things with tag=spam.

I think I will report it to the mantis bugtracker bugtracker?
Actually I think I had once seen that bug discussed there, but now can not find the thread or report anymore...
