the DB wont store any other info.

It surely stores who cast the votes (to prevent duplicate votes). As such, there are two ways to update reputation as a vote is cast:

RMGir was pointing out the former approach was used; the latter would make the effect of the bug transient.

Actually, the latter would avoid the bug completely.

    yes, good point

    Everything::Experience.pm is not trivial to understand or to change

    and I'm suspecting a recent change to introduce this problem which can't be fixed without changing the data model.
