the Coptic Orthodox Church isn't officially "counted" so well... guesswork. And no my guess would be millions off this number as well.

What are those 'other Christians'?

My question as well. Mormon's and so maybe? (after posting edit: like Raylight said)

3.8 million Christians in Egypt might be a government number. I don't think they'd have a problem throwing out the lowest possible figure they can.  I would guess that the numbers the Coptic Church would give would be double or even triple that.
