You can click on the "last reply" bit to get to the last page.
Is it really important to know the number of pages? Isn't the number of replies the better thing to know? Number of pages is a very arbitrary thing. For 40 replies you could have 1 page, or 40 or something in between.
So the icon is a link, all right, non standard...
It may or may not be important. You previously had both pieces of information. Now less. Let's say you know there's something you want to see on page 3. Currently it's page 5 (but who the hell knows until you get in there now). Well, you can't, first you go to page 1 or "latest."
And for 40 replies, I have a feeling, if this forum works like a forum is supposed to work, the number of replies per page is not variable. So pages gives you a sense of how long this thing is before you open it.
