Open new calc sheet.
Left column A empty
In cell A2 type function =countif($A$1:$A$2;"<>0")
In cell A3 type function =countif($A$1:$A$2;"=0")
Criteria "<>0" (cell A2) is 2 should be 0
Criteria "=0" (cell A3) is 0 should be 2
Till version 6.1.2 was correct.

5. Check the results

Actual Results:
countif($A$1:$A$2;"<>0") = 2
countif($A$1:$A$2;"=0") = 0

Expected Results:
countif($A$1:$A$2;"<>0") = 0
countif($A$1:$A$2;"=0") = 2

Reproducible: Always
