I sent off a patch for review that fixes a problem with the counters in 
flow expiration messages, which is hopefully the same problem as the one 
you are having.  Does this match your scenario:

* The flows you are inserting are exact match flows.
* There is a timeout that causes the flow to expire within 5 seconds of 
traffic flowing either due to a hard timeout or an idle timeout that is 
less than 5 seconds.

If both of those are true then I believe that the issue should be 
resolved by the patch.
