article mode: \titlepage resets page counter
A new frame with \titlepage will reset the page count to 1 in article mode (probably in all modes but truly a problem in article mode).
It is a minor problem, given that a simple workaround is to wrap this behaviour in some macro and make it mode sensitive, but it took a while to find out the problem.
A quick fix would simply be to have a message that indicates page count is reset, such that one can look into the log and quickly understand the problem, and save some time fooling around!
