Private messages = -1?

Anybody else have "-1" as number of Private messages:

edit: Had a PM draft still sitting, waiting to be sent. So I deleted it but the message count still reads -1 at the top of the page. Same goes for the 5 messages sitting in my Outbox, a couple of them going back a few years; deleted them but it didn't change the count.

Another data point... According to my browser tab when I just logged in here, there is 1 message waiting for me. However, the count at the top of the page now reads "0"!. When I clicked on the Private messages link, got to the display of my Inbox index, I refreshed the page. The count then went to "1". After reading the PM, the count went back down to 0. So, it appeared to be a temporary error (?) and I hope it doesn't re-occur.

Known PHP problem, over a year old sadly.... https://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/PHPBB3-14361
I remember dealing with this on a different forum using phpbb software.
