Incomplete taxon swap bug creating two maverick IDs and no agreeing IDs

Hard to describe this one, but here is a link below: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/7416415
It seems that the taxon swap partially withdrew the ids, but still applied them to the community ID and counted the new IDs as separate making them both maverick.

Possibly the same bug as the one here: https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/failed-update-after-taxon-change/4290

Everything looks right now. In my experience taxon swaps sometimes take a while to fully process (propagate to all observations and IDs, re-index, etc.), especially for taxa with large numbers of observations, or at times of day with heavy system loads. If you check too soon, you may catch things in an incomplete state of change.

Odd, the taxon swap happened 7 months ago according to the IDs. I wonder if someone messed with it after I posted which caused the taxon swap to update. I checked it a couple times after posting too, but didn’t want to touch it so the developers would have a chance to check it out.
