Links to pages x and y opening up the same page?

Hi Guys,
I don't know if this is just me, but lately, as in today and yesterday, threads may say they have 5 pages. I would be on page 4, which doesn't have 10 posts yet, and then click on the button to go to page 5 (both the "next" button and the "5" button). However, the page 5 or next button opens up the same page I am on, which is, in this case, the half filled page 4. I don't know if this is happening to anyone else, but it's kinda weird. Sorry if this isn't too clear, let me know if you guys need any clarification to understand what I'm saying

happens to me sometimes, let's say page 4 has got nine posts and then page 5 appears (and nothing is on it, just re-link to page 4).

It's probably when spam/posts are deleted, the posts become invisible but in a way still contribute to the amount of pages. I call them ghost posts.

I think spmwinkel is right about when posts gets deleted. The posts get deleted but the ghost pages stay there
