Comment (by danbp):

 It's effectively not a bug , but IMHO a count that isn't very usefull, or

 "type" is never mentionned actually to public. It's only counted, then
 dispatched over the menu. So i don't see the utility of a number beside
 This is a under the hood information, and necessary to get it to work,

 Instead a count of different things, it could be a simple icon "attention
 - you received something" and let unchanged the details of what, from,
 where, on the different usermenu items.

 Sorry for this UX pov.
