The following question has 5 votes to close, but it is not closed :
Preparing for Set Theory Research
What is going on here? I'm not trying to start a discussion of the merits of this question (though obviously one can discuss this if needed -- I think that everyone made their opinion known on the comments thread, and I am not going to argue if people decide it should stay open). I'm just trying to understand the 2.0 closing mechanism.

It appears that this was a glitch in the closing system. There was an unusual delay between the fifth vote and actual closure during which a sixth vote was cast.

Just to let Francois Dorais know -- I'm still suspended on meta, but I'll accept and vote up your answer once my suspension period is over. My suspension on the main site has been lifted.
