I just cleared all visible review tasks, but still the review notification cries

$\hskip2in$ "~22 posts awaiting review"

Does "~" mean that the service is just too slow to, or what? Or is it meant as a crude approximation?

Believe it or not, this is by design. My solution is to hide the distracting orange light with user CSS, and instead use a bookmarklet that shows current review count in the tab name of the review page.
