Comment (by garyc40):

 I got the same issue as mdawaffe described.

 It turns out that whenever you create an instance of WP_Screen, it
 overwrites the `$typenow` and `$taxnow` global variables.

 Attached below is a patch that fixes this. `$typenow` and `$taxnow` are
 supposed to be modified only when WP_Screen::set_current_screen() is

 Also I refactored a bunch of spaghetti lines that deals with 'edit-xxx',
 'edit-tags' and 'edit.php'.
