Normally when a question is closed as duplicate there is a link to the duplicate and the header looks like this: enter image description here

But I noticed this question today that seems to have been closed as a duplicate but there is no link: enter image description here

Strangely though, there is still a link in the 'Linked' questions part in the right hand column: enter image description here

even though this link doesn't appear in any question, answer or comment.

What is going on here? Is this a weird anomaly, a new way of doing things, or something that's always existed that I don't know about?

    Even weirder: the edit link to change which questions it's linked to 404s! Re-tagging as bug.

    Another example japanese.stackexchange.com/q/76353/1628 seems to happen when the asker accepts a duplicate vote...?
