It seems the reverification did not remove all invalid demos from the server. There's a 2-move 1st place on MetDROiD Echoes: Temple Gardens: 2S 1W which is impossible to obtain, since the player cannot get to that entrance without scoring the room first. Manually requesting verification does not help.

There are probably more of these out there, I think I have seen this issue at least once before.

I think, though of course I could well be wrong, that the spider can't determine that sort of thing. It has no way of knowing which entrances are or aren't valid, or whether you could have reasonably gotten to those entrances: all it can do is look at the room as it is and the moves in the demo.
