A question I asked has only three answers, but my Stack Exchange inbox shows 6 answers on What if the answers of a historical locked question become obsolete?:

You probably have 6 answers. You just can't see some deleted ones (and neither can I) because we don't have 10k reputation. – ben is uǝq backwards Nov 20 '12 at 17:05
@Ben: there are no deleted answers on that question (at least none that 10k users can see). – Mat Nov 20 '12 at 17:29
Could it be that comments and answers are lumped together in that counter? – Daniel Fischer Nov 20 '12 at 18:42
@DanielFischer If that is true then I'd call this a display bug in the notification test then. – Servy Nov 20 '12 at 20:44
@DanielFischer - unlikely. I just had the same bug in SFF.SE and had TWO separate notifications; one of comments; one for (incorrectly counted) answers. – DVK May 8 '14 at 10:21
