Wrong information from Confluence contributors-summary macro

I am getting incorrect results from the {contributors-summary} macro.

Can someone please explain what the macro is doing to get these results and how to get more accurate information?

I've run this macro (in Confluence 3.5x):

{contributors-summary: space=FOO | scope=descendants | contentType=pages,blogposts | groupby=contributors | columns=edits,comments,labels,watches,lastupdate | order=update | showAnonymous=true}

The latest updates in the space were 1 comment yesterday, and 2 page edits last week (all by me).

However, the contributors-summary table shows 4 people whose last update took place "less than a minute ago"

Checking the latest activity in each person's profile, 1 was 3 hours ago, 1 was 2 days ago, and 1 has had no activity since February. [I'm the 4th person listed; my only activity today was creating the page with the contributors-summary macro in my personal space.

So what's going on here?

And, if this macro doesn't return accurate results, how can I reliably get the information this macro purports to provide?

Did you ever find an answer to this? I'm experiencing the same problem and I seem to have narrowed it down to a problem with comments. If any contributor has commented on a page, they always show their last edit "less than a minute ago". I don't know how to fix it.

I am also experiencing incorrect results, which change every time you refresh the page. 

I wrote some code here to tabulate pages and edits by user.
