Subject Re: doc_count set to zero even though documents remain
Date Tue, 22 Jul 2008 12:30:30 GMT

It's definitely not a browser cache issue, I first noticed it testing
my Lisp -> CouchDb library, I then verified the condition using a
browser that had never seen the CouchDb server machine before.

All my tests are automated so I'll just re-run them and see if I can
reproduce the issue.
