Maybe I'm stupid but from your description, it sounds like 
you are manually reversing the tape and the counter is
counting the same way as it would with the autoreverse.
You are moving the track to the head instead of the 
autoreverse moving the head to the track, same effect.
A bug? Makes sense to me....
