Weird bugs?

I don't know what to make of this yet.

I did a code update on a backup machine on Mar 4'th and left it there to try working out problems and do some testing, you know, the norm. I started mod_proxying forward to that server yesterday. This morning I woke up to this support request. http://www.weedweb.net/support/see_request.bml?id=286

I started looking into it after actually realizing that there was a problem.

I'm lost as to how the user 'ai' is "forwarding" to 'bootycutie69'.

mysql> select * from user where user='bootycutie69';
Empty set (0.00 sec)

mysql> select * from user where user='ai';
Empty set (0.00 sec)

mysql> select * from user where userid='20480'; <--- that's bootycutie69
Empty set (0.00 sec)

I updated from the 'livejournal' tree today and created a test user, 'test100'. I can query that one fine, but it seems that every account created between userid 20055 and 20421 isn't there. The user 20055 (uid) was created on March 16'th, so that makes no sense either.

The "forwarding" thing is happening to more than just the user 'ai'.

Another one that it's happening to:

hippieloveherb (20519) -> hippy (8539)

There's more of them.

Sorry this is so muttled together, I can just make nothing of it.

UPDATE: The redirection seems to happen to similar usernames.

This problem is also effecting friends lists of people with these "forwarded" users in their list.
