Weirdness with page drafts when publishing pages



We're seeing something strange very occasionally when editors publish pages. It appears that instead of publishing the current draft, a new draft is created with the modified content and the old published version is republished as the new version.

Anyone seen this before?

Update: This has nothing to do with publishes. It just seems to have randomly when things are changed on the page (i.e. 2 drafts are created). The newest draft is always a copy of the published version and therefore in affect the changed made have been lost as the 2nd draft cannot be published.

Managed to see what web requests the browser was making when one of these duplicates is created. Some sensitive information has been removed:
