I have seen a double question from the same user: 1 and 2, and reported it.

But looking at the profile of the same, I see only the old question, like if the new one didn't exist. Is that an edit of the other, it's a refresh problem or what?

Those are two different users (see the user IDs in the urls), though with the same display name and gravatar. They are almost certainly the same person, so a moderator will likely merge the accounts which will remove this discrepancy.

    \$\begingroup\$ How can that be possible? Are double nicknames allowed? \$\endgroup\$ – clabacchio Feb 23 '12 at 11:24
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes, they are allowed. User names are not unique on this site. \$\endgroup\$ – user5104 Feb 23 '12 at 11:28

    \$\begingroup\$ @clabacchio - To be clear, having multiple accounts to upvote your own posts, to circumvent blocks, etc. is not allowed. Making a duplicate account intentionally to pretend to be someone else is not allowed. However, if someone else named, say, "Fabian" wanted to sign up, they could both use the name. \$\endgroup\$ – Kevin Vermeer Feb 23 '12 at 15:47

As Fabian pointed out, those are two different users. One is unregistered, while one is a registered user who also has an account on Stack Oveflow.

It seems that the user attempted to edit their question, but was not logged in.

I've closed question 1 as a dupe and merged it into 2. I also merged the unregistered user into the registered user. Now, both questions show up under the remaining user:
