Mailbag: Patch Count Wrong?

For this month's Patch Tuesday, John got way more than the two patches Microsoft announced:

It is curious that the patches that Microsoft sends to the home users seldom matches the number you give. This week I got eight updates to my home computer. No, these were all new. I use my computer daily, and on patch Tuesday, M$ sends me updates that install when I shut down for the day. This week it was EIGHT. That is a lot more than the TWO you warned me about. Do you have any idea why the count is different?
