Orange numbers with a + in Track Status feild

In Session View, in the track status feild, right beside the circle representing the loop, instead of the number of beats in the loop, there is an orange "2+".  What does this mean?

    I encountered this once in a Live set too, didnt know what it meant either.

    Found this on the ableton forum:

    "Orange numbers in Live stand for fractional values that can not be desplayed due to the resolution (i.e. the number of digits) the Abletons chose for that number display.
    Supposed your loop is based on 4/4 signature, it means that your loop lenght consits of an odd number of quarter notes (like e.g. 3 quarter notes plus 1 eights note, if your loop is 7/8th long).
    If you want to avoid the orange numbers, you could increase the signature resolution of your clip, e.g. instead of 4/4 make it 16/16."
