I'm seeing the CAPTCHA today. The behavior is a little unstable, so it's hard to bisect to find out when this started, but I suspect HTLM5 parser.

The problem here is that we request the captcha image twice, so server side state gets out of sync with what is actually displayed.

The first request is made by normal parser, and the second one is made by preload scanner. This may or may not be a bug in loader, but preload scanner getting behind normal parsing makes no sense at all.

This probably affects more than just one site.
