What actually happened when the Google+ notification says a contact "did something"?

Here's a screenshot of the notification I see in Gmail about G+ activity:

notifications drop down

Rahul yadav added you on Google+.
Gaurav Tripathi & Nilesh did something.

But what did the contacts on the second line actually do? Does this wording mean anything in particular?

Another example:

did something mention

Edit : Now, That notification is modified as follows.

New Modified Notification

I assume

"They did something = They added me into their circles"

Does this show up on another browser ? –  Binarylife Aug 26 '11 at 15:17
    
@Binarylife - Hmm ! Its not browser specific. I found it in each browser. –  Sagar R. Kothari Aug 26 '11 at 15:24
    
It's not a typo, it is "something" with an O –  Eight Days of Malaise Aug 27 '11 at 3:44

I got this notification in GMail, while on Google Plus I got a notification those contacts added me back.

It is possibile that this is a new notification type previous versions of the notification counter didn't have support for, and thus "did something" is what they fall back onto.

did you notice my modified/edited question ? I added a new snap-shot there. –  Sagar R. Kothari Aug 29 '11 at 6:26

@sugar Next time a new kind of notification is added, though, it'll still show up as "did something." :) –  badp Aug 29 '11 at 9:03
