Double or Nothing wager not working - Update on the Update

My Double or Nothing wager is not working, I have been stuck on day 0 of 7 for about a week. Anyone else have the same problem?

Interestingly, today is my seventh day on the wager and I received the 10 lingots, even though the scale still shows day 0 of 7. Though now, it is impossible to make another bet as it shows the bet is in place.

Friday: I've completed the first day of my wager, and it shows day 1 of 7.

Interestingly, I did not pay for this bet. Perhaps this is something new?

I believe there have been a few forum posts about this. I directed someone else here from: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/20478902

If it doesn't sort itself out, report it as a bug: http://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

"Historically" (if I can say that) when this happens, it seems to get sorted (or sort itself) quite quickly:

Both those very old threads say it was fixed somehow. I searched for "day 0" with the quotation marks and found these. Though there's no guarantee that what caused them is similar, nor that the fix will be as quick.

I've sent a bug report, but it would be helpful if other's also did.

I've heard it's because of the server problems.

I have the same problem. It has also taken 10 ingots from me as the first 5 did not activate / work. I have kept up my streak so hopefully it will correct itself.

I am getting the "fail" message for the double-or-nothing wager 10 minutes after I made the wager! Sorry, you lost your wager! What? I literally made the wager 10 minutes ago and have been taking lessons the whole time
