[wp-hackers] How can I filter on post count for categories?

To be clear, I am currently developping a ticket system based on Wordpress.
So I created a custom type "ticket". I have customized the admin to include
this new type and duplicated the post editor with some restrictions.

The idea behind that is that I wanted to keep wordpress built-in features 
I didn't want to tweak the post editor. So I added another menu from scratch
with the same functionnalities as the post editor with custom fields.

Now that my admin I/F looks ok, I need to be able to bring the tickets with
the posts together on the front end. It works pretty well with some 
on the wp_query however I am stuck on this category counter ;)

I will try the suggestion from Austin, thanks ;)
