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

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/opengl* (link)

with the list of questions for the tag opengl:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/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.
