The view counter is cached while the vote count is "real time". Jeff has posted about this on one of the other new meta sites, but as there's half a dozen now I can't remember which one.

I think there're bugs with the view counter, because it's also possible that an answered question have 0 views. It may also just be delayed like some of the other parts of the SO system. Reputation changes, for example are delayed between a site and it's meta and Area 51.
