Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

If you compare the list of questions for the wildcard tag opengl*:* (link)

with the list of questions for the tag opengl: (link)

you would expect the wildcard tag to show more questions than the tag without the wildcard. But if you sort by newest questions and take a look at the second page (with 30 per page) you'll notice that the wildcard tag shows older questions there and is missing quite a few questions that are shown in the non-wildcard tag.

The same happens for example for drupal and drupal*.

This is also not a temporary glitch, this has been broken for at least half a year now.

This was fixed some time ago (there's also an older bug report somewhere :-). Marking as completed.
