Yes, probably because the user is a member of 2 different roles that 
have access, and therefore the GROUP BY ends up counting both. There's a 
problem similar to this in core in counting forum posts, for example. I 
don't know of any solutions to this, either. This is a really 
unfortunate effect of the query we use. :/
