Seemingly random reply counts?

I just looked at Nodes to consider, and it told me that Use of uninitialized value in string eq had 9 replies. Now I can only find 6 replies there, and although my counting skills aren't usually very good, I can occasionally tell the difference between 6 and 9.

I also think I saw similar differences in SoPW, and the reply count is never lower than the visible replies, always the same or higher.

Is this a known bug, and going to be fixed? Or is it an unexpectedly large number of reaped nodes that causes this difference?

    ... the reply count is never lower than the visible replies, always the same or higher.

    ... unless you're viewing as an anonymonk? I was viewing the front page and the thread about Net::FTPServer showed 3 replies (at that time there were 7).

    Weird.

    Q: What's the difference between 6 and 9 ?
    A: 180 degrees.

    Cheers,
    Rob

      Or 3141 fathom-furlongs; it depends on the meaning of '6' and '9' :P

      Uhm, on my clock that's only 90 degrees... ;-)

        Hmmmm ... probably depends upon whether we're talking Celsius or Fahrenheit :-)

        A 6 dressed up as a 9?

        You're only wasting my time...

    the difference between 6 and 9

    Reminds me of one of my favourite songs.
