Comment (by strangerstudios):

 I just ran a test on 3.9.1 and when you force delete a post (and thus skip
 the trash status) the `transition_post_status` hook is NOT fired. I don't
 believe there is a way to delete without trashing first in the vanilla
 admin, but you can with a function call like this:

 `wp_delete_post( 2855, true);  //setting $force_delete to true`

 So we will still want to hook into post_delete to catch these cases I'd

 Also, the count will only be changing if the status is changing to or from
 "publish" (or being force deleted). The `transition_post_status` hook
 passes `$new_status`, `$old_status`, and `$post` as params. If we did a
 test `if($new_status == "publish" || $old_status == "publish")`, we could
 avoid resetting the count (and what could be a decently long query on very
 large sites) if the status was changing from draft to trash or something
 like this.

 If this makes sense, I can write a new patch that keeps the post_delete
 hook in there and possibly updated the function to optionally take
 `$new_status` and `$old_status` params to test them before updating the
