absolute-limits sometimes returns negative value

Bug Description

Nova icehouse 2014.1.2

There is a case where nova absolute-limits returns negative values for *Used fields
even when there is no instance for the project (as below)

*Used should be 0 when there is no instance.

Note that after it happened, I booted one instance.
Then *Used fields became the correct value (1 for totalInstancesUsed)
After that the instance was deleted and *Used fields was reset to 0.

Can you create a reproduce scenario? We know there are some consistency issues in limits, but we really need a reproduce scenario to figure out what's up.

I am exploring how to reproduce it, but cannot so far. I experienced this three times in these two month in our lab using Icehouse with ~20 nodes. I noticed this because Horizon Overview page (the default login page) cannot be displayed with a traceback. I will keep exploring how to repro.
Note that the full tempest jobs are run daily and the database backend is Galera cluster.

(On Horizon side, it brings bad user experience as the default page after login is affected, so a workaround to replace negative values in total*Used with 0 is under review and it will be backported to Icehouse.)

There is no patch to nova at the moment as I don't have a reproduce scenario so far.
Horizon side bug related to this issue is bug 1370869 (and it was shipped as a part of RC1).
