How many posts in a thread?

I was just looking at a thread which was fairly new and had very few posts so far. I read it, then closed it, then refreshed "Active" and noticed that it now had 23 contributions (the number in the little grey circle after the title in the "Active" list

So I opened it again to see what people had written in the mean time, and noticed (for the first time) that there is also a little grey circle with the number of posts at the top, after the title. It said "17"!

Hardly an important matter in the grand scheme of things, but it did seem odd!

Some threads show how many new posts you haven't seen yet. 23 minus 17 is 6, so perhaps you had already seen 6 of the comments on the thread without many posts.
