I've noticed a problem with the "You have new replies" button. The last 3 times I've seen the yellow envelope, I've clicked on it but actually there were no replies at all.

Did anyone experienced the same behaviour? Any clue?

    $\begingroup$ I have experienced this many, many times. It seems that the envelope has many problems, or at least it had many problems at some point of time. meta.stackoverflow.com/search?q=envelope $\endgroup$ – Tsuyoshi Ito Nov 17 '10 at 11:54

    $\begingroup$ One thing that often happens is that if I have favorite changes or other such things, the envelope lights up. even if I have no new replies $\endgroup$ – Suresh Venkat Nov 17 '10 at 17:04
  • $\begingroup$ See meta.stackexchange.com/questions/68387/…, but keep in mind that many things changed recently about the behavior of the envelope icon. $\endgroup$ – Tsuyoshi Ito Nov 20 '10 at 18:17

Every time I've thought I had no replies, I realized I just needed to click the "show n more comments" link to actually see the replies. It's not at all obvious that I needed to do so, so for a long time I thought it was misreporting comments.
