If I don't select any text at all, TS gives me a different word count (in my case ~3500 words), and a line count almost double the actual. What are these counts?

I don't know why there would be a difference in word/sentence count if you do a Select All or not but you might try the Droptexcount Drop Scripts available at <https://dl.dropbox.com/u/10932738/index.html> as Droptexcount.zip. Those scripts embed the texcount program and produce an html file with varying amounts of detailed information about your document and open that file in your default browser. Simply drop your .tex file onto the script you wish to use.

Good Luck,
