You're sure the over-count was caused by the upgrade?Counts can be
counted on (heh) to overcount. What is the scale of the over-count?

Also, do you realize that drain doesn't actually prevent over-replay,
though it should?

Check for replayed operations in the system log..
grep -i replay /path/to/system.log

(I see further down thread that your logs do in fact contain replay.
Please comment to this effect, and how negative the experience is for
counts, on 4446?)

Perhaps if you comment on here you can help convince the debian
packager that auto-starting a distributed database when you install or
upgrade its package has negative operational characteristics.

Expecting counters to not over-count may qualify as "wrong." But your
process seems reasonable.
