I have just reviewed a question in the "First questions" queue that in reality was that user's second question on MSE (the truly first one being from July 16th). Is this a bug? If not, how should this behaviour be understood?

From the announcement of the new review queues on Meta.SE: "A user’s first few posts may require extra attention and to help new users get the hang of things, First questions and First answers will accept up to three posts per user if their first couple aren’t successful."
