We are not properly preserving the state of task and topic filters during the onboarding experience.
So far so good. Now, I open the topic filter:
My topic is not listed, and if I press "Done" the filter is unset.
Same issue with the task type filter, my selection of "Copyedit" has disappeared:
Note that if you make a topic and task type selection during onboarding, and *do not* interact with the topic/task filters, and then visit Special:Homepage
again, the selection you made in onboarding is preserved. So there is probably a relatively quick fix to be made when the dialog is opened during onboarding to check if initial settings exist, and if so, to respect those instead of overwriting them.
The above issue has been fixed. However, another issue is present:
In my local wiki, I select Biography (39 articles)
I check the box for "Copyedit", I see 40 articles found
I press "Get suggestions"
I tap the topic filter, and the count is correct:
I tap the task type filter, and the count is 19 articles. (Yes the screenshot here shows "References" also -- the error is not exactly deterministic as far as I can tell, and I also saw the miscount once while opening the topic filters, though it seems to mostly happen with the task type filters.)
