This issue is that even the servers do not accurately know how many nodes
are in a stub.  The percentage that the client displays is based upon the
worst case number of nodes that may be present within the stub. The number
of nodes that need to be evaluated are dependent upon the particular
algorithm (core) being used by the client (which although we currently
only have one deployed, there is potential for introducing alternate more
optimized ones later).
