Shared taxonomy for custom post types reports wrong post count

I have a custom post type called "event", and I have enabled the default "category" taxonomy for that post type.

When going to wp-admin/edit-tags.php?taxonomy=category&post_type=event you will see the post count for each category to the left, listed under the column heading "Events". This count also includes regular posts (the default post type "post"). Likewise, when going to wp-admin/edit-tags.php?taxonomy=category the count for events are included. Very misguiding.
