I have setup BlogEngine on my development workstation so we can evaluate it for our intranet. Everything seems to be working fine except for the Recent Comments widget. At first, it didn't seem to work at all and displayed nothing. Then it suddenly started to work, but does not display the most recent comment, or perhaps I don't understand how it is supposed to be working. We have two test post, Test 1 with 6 comments and Test 2 with 2 comment. By the date/time stamps on the comments, the last comment on each of the 2 posts is the most "recent" but that's not what the widget displays. It is displaying the 3rd to last comment from Test 1, and the 2nd to last comment from Test 2. In other words, I see 3 comments that are more "recent" than what the widget is showing.

Also, I have the widget set to show 3 comments, but it only shows 2.

The Recent Posts widget works just as expected, as does the Comment RSS feed, so I'm stumped. This is build 1.5.0.7 running on IIS 5.1, ASP.NET 2.0.50727, Win XP.
