Occasionally when I log in, I see a notification count (with a yellow background) to the left of the "tools" link:
This is not the suggested edit count notification, which is orange and usually shows up to the right of the "tools" link (if I recall correctly). When I hover over this notification badge, I get a tooltip telling me there are flags to be acted on.
However, clicking the icon brings me to the last "tools" page I was at, and there are never any flagged posts displayed. Previously I have only see flagged post count notifications when I was already navigated to the tools page, and never in the top bar. Anybody know what's going on? Is this a bug?
