M&S contactless - strange behaviour


I used my (Beta) card at M&S today using contactless for <£10. It was refused but accepted when using chip & PIN. When I looked at my account later I saw that the initial attempt had been debited to my account, credited back and then the chip & PIN debit applied. Net net I am OK but wondered whether this was an M&S issue or something at Mondo and if anyone else had experienced this.
