I don't think I've seen a single post that claims that his bug counts are wrong. The arguments against Mangelo's methods that have been posted here can be summed up in two words: Sampling error.
Now we can argue about whether this should be called a math error or not ... it's certainly debatable but ultimately irrelevant.
Naturally this implies that if this is so, that there is a good deal of what amounts to trash in the bugzilla database. Or at least sufficiently heterogeneous objects that his analyses do not have the significance that he attributes to them. This idea doesn't particularly surprise me, especially given such a large collection of heterogeneous entries maintained by such a large number of people over such a long period of time.
