Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.

This bug is still prevalent, appears to be cache related. Two identical requests return different data: first request respects jsonp query parameter, all subsequent requests ignore it until (I presume) the server-side cache expires. This is the case for revisions 1.0 and 1.1.

These two requests in chronological order:

GET http://api.serverfault.com/1.1/users/6246/top-answer-tags?key=P5K7zSMTYk-Has4Spe848g&jsonp=jsonp12980289083367&_=12980289093903232

200 OK

Very similar problem to that old bug, though this one was restricted to new methods only.

It has been fixed.
