The user profile for Stack Overflow user David lists 229 points for his top rated answer:

229    Programming challenge: can you code a hello world program as a Palindrome? (3)

However, when you view his answer, it lists +43/-1 votes.

This looks like a bug to me. I would expect his profile to list something like +42 to his answer:

42    Programming challenge: can you code a hello world program as a Palindrome? (3)

Update:

Downvoter helped me realize what's going on... User David has three answers:

So the sum of points is 167 + 42 + 20 = 229 == 229

However, the "Answers" in his profile still links to just the Python answer. I find this confusing & think Stack Overflow should have 3 separate answers listed in the users profile.

Actually, he has 3 answers on that question.

You were missing this one, that has +25/-5

So... 167 + 42 + 20 = 229 == 229

    +1 for use of MS Paint! This "feature" is confusing: It takes you to an answer with 3 comments. I think the user profile should contain separate links to each answer. – Pete Mar 3 '10 at 0:26
