YouTube comment history weirdness

For the past week or two (so, probably unrelated to the change that happened yesterday), I've been having a weird problem on YouTube.

It used to be that I could click over to History -> Comment History which would take me to https://www.youtube.com/feed/history/comment_history where every comment I made on any video, including any replies I made to other people's comments, would show up.

Now, however, it seems that only comments made directly on the video itself, or my own replies to those original comments of mine, but NOT comments I make in reply to anyone else's comments, are showing up in there.

My reply-comments still show up under the actual video, and people can see them and reply to them. They just aren't showing up in my Comment History.

The Googles do nothing. Any thoughts from here?

Looks like I get the same behaviour you're describing.

I guess YouTube is a buggy mess? I mean that isn't that surprising.

The new YouTube UI has been hella buggy for me, especially for comments. If I watch two videos consecutively and scroll through the comments on the second, I occasionally see the text of comments from the first video in completely unrelated comments.

Through no action of my own, my problem has magically resolved itself.
