MSN Search Pagination Bug

A WebmasterWorld thread reports a weird MSN pagination bug. Basically, do a search on United Health and then click on the page 2 link. You will notice, if you scroll back down, it will highlight that you are on page 3 and not page two. However, the URL looks correct for page two; &first=10, which denotes that you are starting at result 10. Same thing happens if you click on page 3, from page one, it will make it look like you are on page 4. It doesn't happen with all searches, seems to happen with United Health but not some others.

I've also noticed on some MSN searches that the first SERP displays up to 10 results pages links (previous, 1....10,next) when there are only something like 35 results returned. If you click on "10" it just takes you to the last page of results, which in this case would be page 4.
