I checked back on a question to which I had posted an answer and discovered that I allegedly also posted a comment with the same content (although truncated) at exactly the same time.

What's going on here? Did a moderator think that my answer should have been a comment, hit the convert button, and then realise that it was truncated and half-undo the conversion? Is it some weird bug?

I would delete the comment, but I don't want to muddy the waters further until I understand what happened.

It appears a mod converted your post to a comment, then changed his mind and undeleted it, without removing the comment. I can't speak to why he deleted or restored it, but I've deleted the comment as it's incomplete and no longer needed anyway.
