Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

I just manually re-tagged a couple of questions to merge 2 tags.

However, when confirming that the re-tagging worked:

I assume it's just some lag due to caching?

UPDATE: Definitely caching, as the count now is down to correct zero

When you first floated it, there were 3 tagged so, did one a while back, cache updated to show only 2 who knows when after that. – random Oct 15 '09 at 13:21
I just went through and re-tagged around 30 questions, and it's funny because certain tabs say there are 30 questions in that tag, but no questions show up, while other tabs say there are no questions at all for the tag. It's too bad SO can't use perfect caching, but it's understandable. – icco Nov 15 '09 at 20:42

The tag list is heavily cached so it may take a while for you to see any changes in the counts.
