This could very well be a symptom of the estimatedResultCount bug. Basically, the estimatedResultCount is generally inconsistent and often wildly inaccurate. Although I have no direct knowledge of how Google generates the page code, it would only make sense that it would be based on this estimate. And if it's off, the whole thing is off.

That does sound weird. Can you post a link to the app so some of us can have a look and see if there is a reason for that.

In my javascript I'm making a call to

Most of the time I get back 8 results for the first page just fine, but sometimes I get back fewer even though the cursor indicates there are more pages.

Any idea why this might be happening, or how I can get all 8 results on the first page? It looks odd to get less than 8 results and still have pagination.
