Reporting wierdness

Hello CSS-testsuite,

Looking at the CSS Transforms Module CR Test Suite Results I can see results that I obtained earlier today, that stop where I stopped
http://test.csswg.org/harness/results/CSS3-TRANSFORMS_DEV/

However, clicking on an individual test gives odd results:

svg-origin-relative-length-002	HTML	fail	Firefox 11.0 (Gecko 20100101) on Linux i686	2012-04-17 10:33:41 	173.177.34.29

Odd because the result (pass/fail/can't tell) is mine but the user agent string (as reported in the bottom left of the harness) should be
Testing: Firefox 14.0a1 (Gecko 20120418) on Windows NT 5.1

and the IP address resolves to somewhere in Canada.

$ nslookup 173.177.34.29
Server:  dns1.proxad.net
Address:  212.27.40.240

Name:    modemcable029.34-177-173.mc.videotron.ca
Address:  173.177.34.29


It seems unlikely that, short of quantum tunnelling, someone in Canada using an older version of Firefox and a different platform is submitting the exact same results I am, at the same time, while my results mysteriously disappear. So the reporting is .... odd.
