Anyone else notice the difference in the queue count icon and the actual review queue. I find it quite annoying....
Here it shows 8 items, but the actual queue is empty. The variance also varies and is never the same or easy to identify a cause.
Expanding on my comment, the number shown in the review queue is heavily cached because it's a monster query to get those numbers so real-time updates don't show.
The caching on those numbers is about 5 minutes to help with hitting the database too often. This isn't a bug it's status-bydesign.
