OK, the mapping all checks out correctly ... there must be something
wrong with the way we count before mapping.

If you're tracing everything, could you add these static prints to the
trace ... they'll trigger a lot, but capturing how they applied to the
failing request might tell us why the count is wrong.

Thanks,
