Subject: generating a wordlist with john

I am running into an issue with john 1.7.2 for Linux.  If I use the command:
john --incremental=All --stdout=1
I get 96 words
Shouldn't it be 95?  26 lower + 26 upper + 10 number + 33 specials = 95

If I use:
john --incremental=All --stdout=2
I get 9121 words
Shouldn't I get 96^2 which is 9216?  As you can see I am off by 95.

If I use:
john --incremental=All --stdout=3
I get 866,496 words when I think it should be 96^3 = 884,736.  I am off by 18,240 which is ((95^2) + (96^2) -1)

Am I doing something wrong?
