Mid-sprint: Splitting a story into "Accepted/Done" and "the rest" as a new Story
This seems like a bad smell/practice. At the minimum I would think it would distort velocity and possibly encourage some bad habits. I would recommend trying to encourage better habits so this doesn't happen (More user involvement, smaller stories, etc).
I would be interested it to know if this is a very rare occurrence or happens a lot.
