Default False text message notifications

Anyone else having this problem? The messaging icon at the bottom of the screen shows a '' 1'' as tho there is a new message, and but when I open the app there are no new messages. Is this a known bug? Galaxy S3 Verizon.

Yeah I haven't been able to figure it out. And it's driving me crazy. I've looked for a solution but no dice. Anyone else have any thoughts?

this bug also start appearing in my unlocked S3 after latest update in which samsung introduced brightness bar in notifications area. I got a temporary solution to this problem without reboot:
1. Long press home button to open recent items with a task manager button on left
2. Click on task manager and select Ram tab and click on clear memory button
3. Go back to Home screen and see
4. This will remove this false notification until next message comes
Hope this will help in removing some annoying and also rebooting phone again and again.
if anyone got any other permanent solution please post here.

Thanks
