Incoming and outgoing packets not registered?

Below I have the output of the same interface twice. The second output has been fro ma few minutes later:

5 minute input rate 0 bits/sec, 0 packets/sec
5 minute output rate 0 bits/sec, 0 packets/sec
48437 packets input, 3099968 bytes, 0 no buffer

How come, that even thou packets are registered incoming and outgoing, but no bits are registered when looking at the 5 minute output? Even if I change it to 30 seconds, I don see anything, the counter stays at 0.

    The five minute part is an average over the span of time configured. It's not real time.
