Issues with SiteCatalyst Browser Detection?

SiteCatalyst data on IE7/Windows 7 browser/OS combo looks fishy.

I'm seeing data indicating as much as 25% of our IE7 users have Windows 7 as their OS. But apparently this is an impossible combination as Windows 7 doesn't support IE7. Anyone have any insights? I think it may have something to do with compatibility mode and the way SiteCatalyst looks at the UA request Version and Platform tokens. This makes sense, but for the high prevalence (>25%) of what I would think would be a low likelihood scenario (users in compatibility mode). Anyone else seen issues like this?
