I would most definitely use a 2L starter.

I was going to do that to begin with, but my main concern was the one program telling me to use 1 pack and the other 2.

Right, well play around with the Mr Malty calculator's "growth rate" slider at the bottom until you get 1 pack showing, then use that volume of starter.

I only have a 2L flask so two packs it is.

Sucks I cant trust Beersmith 2.0. I was really starting to like that program

I don't think 2 packs is a bad idea for 11 gallons beer.

I'm not sure why the number of cells doesn't line up, that's kind of odd.

The amount of starter needed is because of how Beersmith applies the stirplate growth factor. http://www.beersmith.com/forum/index.php?topic=5895.0

I usually use Beersmith for everything but yeast starter calculations. I actually don't use Mr. Malty, either. Check out yeastcalc.com.

There was another thread around here somewhere that had a quote from Brad, the author of Beersmith, where he thought that Jamil had some math errors in Mr. Malty, especially when using a stir-plate.
I myself have been taking the average of the two (Beersmith usually recommends 1/3 of what Mr. Malty does) for my last 4 brews, and they've come out quite nice. Coincidence? Maybe.

Beersmith is pre-set with a higher growth rate factor for a stir plate than Mr. Malty uses.

Go to Options -> Yeast Starter -> Stir Plate Factor - set to 1.55 (default is 2.66) your numbers will then match Mr. Malty almost exactly.
