Count() can be wrong in sharded collections

      The count command does not ignore orphans like find/queries. This is true whether the query is on the primary or secondaries (which is known to be a different issue).

      For a query like this the count can come back larger if there are orphaned docs, but find will filter them out:

      // more than one shard has the document with x:10, some of which are orphans from migrations
      > coll.count({x:10})
      2
      > coll.find({x:10}).toArray()
      [{_id:10, x:10}]
      > coll.find({x:10}).explain() // some of the explain is removed for brevity
      {
      	"clusteredType" : "ParallelSort",
      	"shards" : { ... },
      	"n" : 1,
      	"nChunkSkips" : 1,
      	"numQueries" : 2,
      	"numShards" : 2,
      	"millis" : 2
      }
