Unexpected Results From Clicking The Unanswered Button

If I select a tag, say Java, then hit the "unanswered" button to show all the unanswered questions, then scroll to a page at the end (the last page for instance) I get a load of questions that have already been answered.

My guess is that the label probably means that there's no accepted answer to the question rather than there's no answers at all, but this seems a bit confusing to me.

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.

Duplicate to:…,…. As elaborated, unaccepted also includes questions that have no positively scored answers, not just ones that lack answers entirely. – Grace Note Jan 26 '11 at 22:48

Unanswered questions are defined as not having an answer with a positive score / an accepted answer. You're probably seeing 0-scoring unaccepted answers.

Ah, that makes sense. Is there a way to get a list of all the questions that haven't got any answer at all? – berry120 Jan 26 '11 at 22:48
@berry120: Try (or type answers:0 into the search box at the upper right corner) – ChristopheD Jan 26 '11 at 22:52
Nice one, that's exactly what I was after. Thanks! – berry120 Jan 26 '11 at 22:55
or just click the "no answers" tab... – Jeff Atwood Jan 26 '11 at 23:05
