Oh, herp, you specified that you have a number-of-keys difference. So it
can't be this one.


First, that number of keys is the number of keys *SEEN BY COMPACTION SINCE
NODE STARTUP* so different runtimes can skew numbers.

Second, that number of keys is the number of times the key has been seen in
all sstables. A single row key with fragments in 5 sstables = "5".

Have you added nodes to the cluster and not run a cleanup compaction?
