Duplicate discussions via API queries

I seem to be getting some discussions reported by the Tender API as both "new" and "open" at the same time. According to the definitions on https://help.tenderapp.com/kb/api/discussions, this shouldn't be possible, as "new" and "open" should be mutually exclusive.

As a simple example, these two queries on our help.neurosky.com domain return the same discussion result

(Many other queries on many of our other queues also return discussions duplicated in both "new" and "open". This was just the simplest example.)

Is this a bug in Tender, or am I misunderstanding the definition of "new" and "open", that they're not actually mutually exclusive?

    Hey Kelvin,

    The API docs were wrong, I corrected them. "New" is a subset of "open": its all the open discussions that have not received any reply yet.

    Hope that helps.
