Just adding a note to the UR mail as to why it was not identified and to contact someone on the forum for a better solution would not be any different from the current canned response they get anyway.
The receiver already knows who closed the UR.

Knowing who created the UR would help editors to PM the user, and encourage forum participation.
No email address or other contact/personal info is made visible. It's as good as sending a forum PM.

The biggest problem is that a lot of PMs goes nowhere but your outbox.

Indeed Mike, I already narrowed it down to URO & posted in the UROverview thread.
It seems to trigger easiest when zoomed out max, like selecting an area in the Areas tab. It also seems to trigger when you click before the page is fully loaded.
From there you are pretty much screwed for any Zooming, as the Permalink also does not get updated with the new zoom. Only way then is to disable URO to allow you to zoom to another level.

Aaaaaaarrgghhhh!

Is there any way to enable the predictable 'click & drag' scrolling? The default speed is way too sensitive for any useful work....

[EDIT] Never mind. I disabled all scripts, cleared cache and had another look. It looks like one or other script was fiddling or clashing with mouse-down events.
I see the default is still click & drag.

The behavior that I saw was that when I left-clicked, the window would start scrolling and the speed was dependent on how far the mouse was moved, pretty much like one of the joysticks you find standard on notebooks these days.

Glad to see this is not how I thought it was.

Now to update scripts & find the culprit, if it's still there....

Looks fixed, at a glance in the editor, and this update in the other thread:

http://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=34676

If your areas aren't fixed, post there? Here? Both. I dunno. I'm just glad nothing ugly had to be done to fix it (mass revert or such).

I've done this now myself, but I'm finding them all over.. I think it's a a larger problem than a random ghost segment.

It's a known issue. We've put in a request to have that automated. We'll see what Waze's response is.

No need to delete.
