JoeHouse - didn't you answer your own question?
Is there a glitche with the Google webmaster tool?
I have checked around on google groups and other google forums and there appears to be an epidemic of webmasters claiming inflated reporting using the WMT link report.
Or are you just taking the opportunity to take a shot at Google's free tool? Did you provide feedback to Google or are you just complaining here?
