inconsistent average star rating?

I notice that frequently while browsing the AppStore on my ipod, the average star rating next to an app while browsing a category is different from the average star rating you see after clicking on the app. Does anyone know why this is the case?

Yeah, this has been a pretty long ongoing problem.

I think it changes whenever a rating calculates in the between. e.g your rating is ~3.7, in the category listing it will show 3.5, but in the app listing it will show 4.0
