Ticket #1112 (open bug)

Moderation bug: can't delete certain post after merging

I discovered a bug which will only arise under certain conditions, but it's really a concrete bug.

This is an example how to evoke this bug:

a) Moderate a thread: split off the last, say, 3 posts into a new temporary thread.
b) Create a new topic with a start posting.
c) Moderate forum: Merge the temporary and the newly created thread. The former start posting from (b) is now the last post in the new merged thread.
d) New posts may (or may not) be added to the merged thread.
e) The former start posting is now between other postings, if new posts have been added, or otherwise still at the end of the merged thread. Anyway, try to delete it. That causes a wrong warning: "This is the first post in the topic, the whole topic will be permanently deleted".
f) If you confirm deletion, really the whole thread will be deleted. There is no way to delete only this single post!

Obviously, the posting is still considered the thread's first one, even if it isn't any more.
