I'm on Mac OSX Lion and this morning when I started up my bitcoin-qt client, it showed a bitcoin balance with over 126 more bitcoins than I currently own!   But the program froze and I had to restart it.
 
Any idea why that errant figure might have shown up in my account?

I'm not too concerned--just curious

it showed a bitcoin balance with over 126 more bitcoins than I currently own!

It probably showed 123.456 right?

It normally just flickers on the display for a fraction of a second.

That will be fixed in an upcoming release:
