Why do questions/tagged/XYZ and tags/XYZ/faq not show the same number?

On SO, the "questions tagged" count is way different than the number shown in the tag list. For example, SproutCore Collection Sorting shows "sproutcore-controllers × 6" while shows "1 questions tagged" (and indeed, there is only one question displayed).

Since the numbers match on other sites I've checked (Meta and Math.SE, Programmers.SE, etc.), while every tag I've checked (e.g. [c#] shows 66,635 in one place and 271245 in the other) on SO has the mismatch, I suspect this is a bug in the tag cache.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

No repro; I see 6 questions. My "Tagged Questions" page for the sproutcore-controllers tag looks like this. – Cody Gray Feb 26 '12 at 7:33

Check which sort tab you're on.

The faq tab shows only 1 question; but other tabs (like info and votes) show all 6 questions as expected.

Sure enough, that's it! Why is it defaulting to the FAQ tab for me on SO, but Newest on other sites? – Gabe Feb 26 '12 at 7:42
@Gabe That I'm not sure about. I think it defaults to the last tab you looked at for any tag. – Adam Feb 26 '12 at 7:44
Yes, it does remember the last active tab. Which leads to strange usability problems, like this one, or this one, or this other one. – Cody Gray Feb 26 '12 at 8:00
