I am trying to get the total number of question with a specific tag AND created within a specific date span.

For example, the number of questions tagged as 'java' created between 16 and 17 Jan 2012:


But this returns a very large number, much larger that the number of questions created in the same date span, for example:


It looks like that when tagged is present, min and max do not work properly


This should be fixed now.

Really fun set of bugs there actually.

In the API we delegate most tag operations to a couple (conceptually) external services, there was a dodge bit of logic in building the request w.r.t. min/max creation dates.

However, fixing that revealed another more pervasive bug around date precision. Most of the API, and the backing databases, store dates out to about a thousandth of a second; a number of service (and the APIs external representation) work at a single second precision. This mismatch caused a number of >= and <= comparisons to really mess up counts and result sets.
