I suspect it's just a sort ordered by (number of posts, name) that's descending, instead of ordering by number of posts descending and name ascending.

Given that this goes against the expected ordering, I think I'd call this a very minor bug. Mind you, the tags page itself doesn't seem to have any (obvious) secondary ordering...

  • Its ordered by ordering by "number of posts descending and name descending" See the tags with number of posts = 1

  • @eSKay: Yes, that's what I mean. I suspect that it's meant to be ascending in name.
