G4IKZ on 50MHz from RI38

Throughout May I operated WSPR on 50MHz from my home in JO02af. So when looking at my last few spots this morning I was surprised to see that at 16:42 yesterday G8HUH spotted me from RI38, apparently using just 1mW. It is doubly curious because the same station spotted me correctly less than an hour later at 17:24. Nobody else seems to have spotted me from RI38, and all other spots in the database show that I was transmitting the correct JO02 locator throughout this whole time. The database goes like this:

17:32 G4IKZ 50.294525 -2 1 JO02af 5 G3ZJO IO92ng 63 275
17:24 G4IKZ 50.294496 -23 -4 JO02af 5 G8HUH IO81mg 232 244
17:24 G4IKZ 50.294457 -7 -1 JO02af 5 G8XWR IO91oc 138 205
16:58 G4IKZ 50.294526 +3 0 JO02af 5 G3ZJO IO92ng 63 275
16:42 G4IKZ 50.294422 -23 0 RI38 0.001 G8HUH IO81mg 14403 352
16:26 G4IKZ 50.294473 -5 -1 JO02af 5 OZ7IT JO65df 871 63

Is this a complete coincidence or is it possible that WSPR can correctly decode a callsign but still get the locator completely wrong? Or was it just that G8HUH did some manual editing of the spot file before uploading it and made a typing error?
