Answer Accepted, but Answer Unaccepted?

I've mentioned this to @pccheese before, but could not find the question after. However, I found one today. Occasionally, I see a Question with an Accepted Answer, but on the right side, it says "Answer Unaccepted". There is no indication of this inside the actual question, so I am wondering what does this mean?

I thought of an logical explanation for this, but I can't remember now.

So the right side is an indication of the most recent activity on a post. The user in this case marked an answer accepted, then unaccepted, then accepted a new answer. My guess is that at some point that activity ticker lost track and we ended up with this limbo state. The question does currently have an accepted answer, and there's since been a comment as the most recent activity, so I think no harm done.
