As described it sounds like a bug, but it is pretty strange that the three examples you cite are not consistent – two creates and one clear. Go ahead and post it. Bugzilla is limping along enough that you can post new bugs. It is just the history that is shot. Ravina, if you can try to reproduce this, it would be appreciated.
I have found the following when using the new "Diebold Voter Card Encoder" with 1.1.3 during training in
From the encoder I created the following "voter cards"; ("M") magnified ballot, ("VM") visual magnified, and
("VH") visual hidden
The units were set in election mode and the cards were voted then re-inserted to clear and program again.
When you re-insert the ("M") voter card the display on the encoder reads M "create"
When you re-insert the ("VM") voter card the display on the encoder reads VM "create"
When you re-insert the ("VH") voter card the display on the encoder reads VH "clear"
Correct me if I am wrong, but when you re-insert the card for re-programming it should simply say "clear", then you select "yes", then it should say "create", it should not have the codes,(M, VM, VH) there at all. The way it is now, you can NOT clear the voter card, if you have selected one of the codes. You can create a new card as long as you are going to use one of the codes, i.e., "M", "VM", "VH".
This was confusing for my students, in that once they created a card with one of the codes, they could not re-use that card as a regular voter card, meaning not able to access a regular ballot.
Pleas let me know if I need to post this to the bugtrack once it is back in action.
