It says that problem 644 was solved by 60 members but only 59 appear in the fastest solvers table. Don't think its a cache problems since its been showing so for a day and I have also tried force reload.

As you can see Fastest Solvers Table and overview are in sync now.
The solve count is cached on the site.
It's not updated until someone solves the problem or an admin views who solved this problem. Even then the overview page is cached so the updated count is only showed when the overview page is refreshed.
When for some reason the solve count is decreased and no one solves the problem (or an admin views who solved the specific problem) this decrepancy remains.
Some reasons for the decrease of the solve count can be:
someone deletes his account or someome resets his progress or someone makes his account private or an admin action on some account.
Anyhow this discrepancies are not an error or a bug but inherent to the workings of the site.

Look up your account. Perhaps it has been set to unlisted.

Sorry, but the requested table would contain too many members to be displayed

"Sorry, but the requested table would contain too many members to be displayed"

message is received instead of displaying statistics for Python language at

"https://projecteuler.net/language=Python"

I believe this is working as intended.

I think it's not expected behavior. Statistics for other languages are displaayed as expected. I suppose it has somethning with Total number of members, since Python is the only one over 50000.
And it I tried it on different computers/OSes/browsers,
from different locations.

It's the way it is intended.
If you go to the main statistics page and switch to "view data for active members only" you can view the active Python members.
