Inconsistent API responses

Hi everyone, first post. I’m setting up my first group via the API with python, and getting strange results. After naming a group, I sometimes get it back when querying the API, and sometimes get an empty list. Something similar happens when I try to delete. I thought perhaps my requests were ill-formed but when I run the same queries from the API page, e.g.,

I see the same thing – repeated requests generate inconsistent responses. Sometimes the group is there, then it’s gone, then it’s back.

Is this expected behavior, e.g., when too many requests are repeated? I would have expected an error response to that effect, but the API seems to accept and respond to each request. Just not with the same answer.
