Incorrect document count during shard relocation

Not sure if this is a known issue, I had about 200 million docs and was
running the cluster-wide count query of documents.

The count was flipping back and forth, one time it said 199.9 and then
flipped back to 200 and back to 199.x and so on.

I noticed shard relocation during this time, not sure if it is related. I
am using ElasticSearch 0.90.7 and Java 1.7 Update 45 Oracle.

Any pointers ?
