[wp-hackers] Caching of numbers of comments?

Hello list,

wordpress 2.0 RC3 seems to cache a lot of things. Does it cache the 
number of comments returned by the "comments_number"-function? Because 
that number seems to be displayed wrong in several postings. Why exactly 
does this need caching or is this bug not related to the cache?

The function currently returns "5 comments" while I definetly see 6 ...

P.S.: Does this limited caching really speed things up? Has somebody 
measured anything? Serving a page on my blog still takes around half a 
second ... half a second to compile some text and links into a 
html-page? That's pretty slow ...
