Please tell me I'm reading this wrong:
Roughly 8 million results have been returned and are awaiting validation.
There are roughly 4 million results out in the field.
That seems to say that more than 4 million results will never be validated, probably a lot more.
I must be wrong. But what am I missing? Could there be 6 million ghosts or more - results where the second unit never got sent out?

A workunit consists of a number of results (up to 10), a lot of those results will be paired up with one or more other results where validation is inconclusive at the moment,
So there are probably somewhat less than 4 million workunits awaiting validation.
