  • Description modified (diff)
  • Milestone changed from Unassigned to 3.1
  • Severity changed from critical to major
  • Summary changed from custom post types and catagories and tags to Misleading post count on taxonomy screen

The problem is that the post count is global accross all post types. It should be restricted to the current post type.
