#7357: wp_update_term_count_now default behavior doesn't work

 Priority:  normal    |   Milestone:  2.7

 Severity:  normal    |    Keywords:  wp_update_term_count_now term taxonomy
 {{{wp_update_term_count_now}}} takes as its first argument an array of
 term ids, and the terms' taxonomy as its second. Then it updates the
 terms' counts based on the number of times a term in that taxonomy has a
 relationship with an object.

 If there is a {{{update_search_term_count}}} callback defined for that
 taxonomy, then {{{wp_update_term_count_now}}} calls the callback to do the
 term counting.  Categories and tags do have their own
 {{{update_search_term_count}}} callback defined, so normally there is no

 However, for any taxonomy that does not have the callback defined,
 {{{wp_update_term_count_now}}} by default updates the count on its own.
 And that's where the problem is, because it suddenly treats term_ids as
 though they were term_taxonomy_ids, which doesn't work.

 My patch fixes the problem by retrieving a term's term_taxonomy_id and
 updating the term count properly.
