[BUG]Notifications: accepted answer, question name is missing sometimes

I've seen this a few times already but don't see any pattern or anything particular about the question or answer.

In Notifications, when your answer is accepted, it's supposed to say "Your answer to the question <description> was accepted". But sometimes <description> is missing. Fortunately, in this case "answer" is a link, so I can still open and see what it's about. But I'm not a fan of extra clicking and this just seems odd (a bug?).

Here is a recent example. Mystery question link.

    Hi, Jelena:

    A fix for this should have rolled out this week. From February 14 release notes: ( "(Notifications) Fixed the issue that title of accepted answer was missing in notifications"
    Please let me know if you run across the issue again.

    Best regards,

    As far as I remember the pattern is like this: if after accepting the answer the question author will post comment to this question then you will see this bug.

    P.S. Sample:

    P.P.S. First time this issue was explained by Jurgen here:

    on 10 Mar 2017!!!

    Still not solved.

    • Thank you! I thought it was already reported somewhere but couldn't find it. (That thing that proposes existing posts when you create a new question is utterly useless IMHO.)

      I can see now this is definitely a bug. Updated the title.
