I got a strange reaction to my TeX. And I cannot recover from it or delete the comment in the following post

  • $\begingroup$ Based on Mariano's answer I'd say that support might be a better choice of tag than bug. $\endgroup$ Jun 11, 2013 at 6:28

  • $\begingroup$ @user1729 If we consider this bug report (as opposed to a request for support), than it seems to me as a duplicate to the question I've posted in my previous comment. (Perhaps it could be closed as an exact duplicate in either case...?) $\endgroup$ Jun 12, 2013 at 7:25
  • $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak An exact duplicate it may be, but it is an exact duplicate of a thread from 2011...It seems like the bug has been forgotten by MSE...so maybe if this thread had been left open it might have served as a reminder?... $\endgroup$
