Email thinks I've stolen someone else's question Answered

I posted the first answer to a question (this one, for reference). The original poster replied to my answer, and I got an email notification saying "You have 1 new answer to a question you asked!"

I thought "that's a bit weird", replied to the reply, and got another message from Robot saying "People are answering your question! You have 1 new answers." and feeding me back my own answer.

It's not exactly a fatal bug for me, but I couldn't help wondering if fwjs28, who was meant to be getting these notifications, actually wasn't, which would be a wee bit more serious.
