Small edit impossible due to "body too similar" error

  • I just tried to fix a "th egood" typo into "the good" but I can't because it says "body to simmilar to previous post".

    I know a bug for this already exists (topic 277), but I can't see whether the bug had been fixed or whether the bug is still open.

    Edit: Ok, tried it again after creating this bug and now the edit passes. Perhaps something to do with instant edits?

    It's the same issue -- whitespace only edits are blocked. There's no issue with edits that involve something other than whitespace. Test on to see.
