Are some of you still having this problem? The software company is not being very helpful so I'm going to have to figure this out by myself, I think.
It varies. At the moment, I right clicked on the four topmost articles on the main page to put them in separate tabs, and I see:
Twins still seeking third base help? - main page claims 7 comments, top of the article says 1 comment, I see 1 comment
State of the starting corps - main page claims 63 comments, top of the article says 1 comment, at end of article is says 12 comments, I count 12
Twins week in the winter leagues - main page claims 19 comments, top of article says 19, end of article says 19, I count 19
Gleeman and the Geek - main page says nothing about comments, top of article says 0, end of article says nothing, I see none
So the last two seem to work correctly, the other two don't.

This is WinXP with an up-to-date version of Firefox.
Another observation, the State of the Starting Corps articles says there are 131 comments at the top, and 145 comments at the bottom.

Also, unrelated, but the same article seems to be missing a link where Parker wrote "Click on this link to see our official thread AND take the survey" -- there is no link there, so I had to manually navigate the forum to find it.

I also saw a similar issue when posting a comment a few days ago too -- that seemed to be related to caching. The article in question had 19 comments, then I posted on it. However, the article page continued showing only 19 comments, while on the front page and the forum, it was up to 23 comments including my own. In that case, I switched to a different browser and I could see all 23 comments on the article page. (I think I logged in on both browsers, I can't recall)

It's intermittent, in terms of seeing it happen over past weeks or months, but it's very reproducible once I notice it happening on a given article. The fact that you can't reproduce it suggests caching is involved, but I don't see the behavior correct itself if I flush the cache so maybe it's not a factor. I don't have any other ideas.
[Edit: just noticed I responded in this thread a few weeks ago. Give me credit for consistency, at least.]

And even on other pages, the comment count near the top of the article page almost never matches the comment count on the front page or at the bottom of the article (even if all of the comments are properly displayed on the article page). Seth's Buxton article today shows 4 comments at the top when there are actually 8.
It seems to be most prevalent on current/active articles, so I'm guessing some values aren't getting updated or refreshed as often as they should.
