2.1b1 - New comment count suddenly (I think) misfiring... any ideas?
A user visits a multi-page thread for the first time.
They look at X comments and then leave the thread.
The Discussion list correctly displays the number of new posts.
User goes back in to the thread, but odesnt get to the end.
Comes back out.
Now no 'new' comments are displayed.
When the user goes back in to the thread, they are taken straight to the last page.
This issue seems to be recent. I can't swear to it, but I haven't noticed it before, and no one has reported it until today.
I have disabled the two most recent plugins I enabled, with no effect.
The 'new' alert box has never shown when a thread is created, before a user visits it.
I haven't made any recent changes at all.
Anyone have a scooby?
I'm guessing I need to repair/update a part of the database, but not sure what or where.
