I just happened to see on the
new tab that there seem to be 12 bounties. But when clicking the
12 bounties link the actual bounties list only shows 7:
After this the bounties link always says there are 7 bounties, even when I return to the
new tab and click around through the various other tabs.
I first tended to shrug that off as some kind of caching problem, but after some time the bounties link yet again said there are 12, only to revert to 7 again when clicking on it. There even was a situation where the
need answers/bounties page listed 12 bounties, only to revert to 7 once I clicked through to one of the bountied questions.
But this all seems very non-deterministic and hard to reproduce and I'm not sure if it is just because 5 of the bounties coincidentally ended just recently.
