[MarkLogic Dev General] cts:sum-aggregate returned incorrect result

I'm testing the cts:sum-aggregate function on a database with 100 million
documents.  There exists a range index for an element, num, I used for this

Evaluating this:


This returns the result

==> 832,332,413  (: commas inserted for viewing :)

Since I know that num falls in the range of 1980 - 2010 and I know every
document in the collection has exactly one 'num' element.  I expect the
result to be around


I also verified by running the DEPRECATED function, cts:sum

cts:sum(cts:element-values(xs:QName("num"), (), ("type=int")))

The result from cts:sum is what I had expected:
 ==> 202,695,795,325 (: commas inserted for viewing :)

I also did another test in a smaller database, here, the cts:sum-aggregate
function gave the correct result.  Can someone explain?
