1) Open two tabs
2) Select the first tab
3) Wait at least 10 seconds to ensure the session is written to disk
4) Press home
5) Cause Fennec to be killed in the background (either open lots of other apps or run oom-fennec)
6) Reopen fennec

After Fennec is reopened and the session restore, the tab count shows 1 even though two tabs are open.

Sorry, not sure how I missed bugzilla mail with comment 5 ..

This and bug 874036 and bug 868222 (three as a package) are what I'd consider low risk in that they affect UI / displayed information only ... but, they prevent us (temporarily) displaying noticeably wrong information to users which of course is a good thing.

Changes are small and easily backed out, or more likely patched and moved forward in the event of further unseen regressions, though after baking for this long, I can't see that as a serious possibility.

The alternatives are limited, basically go without the fixes and expose wrong information to user scrutiny, or find another way of fixing the underlying problems in the current available time-frame.
