Open the THR forum list and wait about 15 minutes.

Then pick a busy forum, make a note of the username and click on the person's username listed as being the most recent poster for that forum.

The SW will give you the profile of the most recent poster, all right. Even if it's not the profile of the person who's shown on the forum list as being the most recent poster.

It sort of looks like a bug, but it isn't. The forum index page gets updated everytime someone makes a new post in a forum. The data base terms "lastposter" and "lastpost" are dynamic. So when you click on a user name after "lastposter" has been updated, you get the profile for the new "lastposter" even though your old page is still showing the name of the previous "lastposter". If you had refreshed your page before clicking on the name, you would have seen it was the name of the member for the profile you got. The same thing goes for the "lastpost".

To see what I mean by those terms, hold your cursor over the name or the lastpost symbol on the index page but don't click it. Look at your status line (the bottom line in IE).
