Yes, something is wrong.  This time I do have the original data I can 
use to correct the problem.

There's a bug in a base class library I'm using during the voting 
process.  Last month I put in a work-around for the problem but it turns 
out the workaround still experiences the problem.  I will work at a 
better fix for the problem.

Once the problem is fixed,  I'll re-apply the voting changes which 
should make all the comments appear.  As clipka suggested, it may change 
the voting results as well. I'll check that out once I fix the problem. 
  If there are changes, I may have to re-do the awards for that round. 
This evening, I'll try to revert the awarding to appear as if the round 
wasn't awarded yet.  After the fix, I'll re-run the awarding process.
