Daffodils that didn't go dormant

I noticed something odd about one set of my daffodils this year: Their  
leaves never died down all summer long and until this recent bout of  
severe cold, they were still green and alive. They were in a big  
outdoor flowerpot by the door and they received late afternoon shade.  
The little muscari that were with them never went dormant either.
Can someone explain what happened with these bulbs?

The daffodils even have the tips of next spring's foliage showing at  
the base of the old leaves.
