Bug? Completed lessons not registering if next lesson started too quickly.

This has occurred twice now over different days, so I assume this is not a one off issue. I am reluctantly burning through my early French lesson crowns to try and get them done quickly, and I've noticed that if I hit 'Start' on the lesson too soon, that I will still get 'xp' for completing a lesson but the number of lessons itself will not update.

For example, I am at crown level 3 for French 'Basics 2.' There are 9 lessons to complete to get to level 4, and I had none completed before today. After completing the my 2nd lesson of the day, I hit 'Start' too quickly, and after finishing my 3rd lesson, I noticed that I still only had 2 lessons out of the 9 required to progress to the next level, yet my 'xp' for the day was a 30. So to do my self-imposed goal of 3 lessons per day towards the crown level, I ended up doing 4 lessons.

This also happened last week, but at the time I assumed that I had done something wrong. As this happened again, and I took the time to really notice how it could and probably happened, I am pretty sure this is a minor bug.

Same here, but it usually rights itself eventually.
