Comment (by johnregan3):

 The reason unit test # 2 above is failing is because a post is being
 created and the value returned by count_user_posts() is returning the
 cached (former) value.

 Looks like this will need an action hooked into (probably) 'save_post'
 that clears this cache.  However, as the cache key is dependent upon the
 post type(s) are requested, it's trickier to guess the precise cache key
 we need to delete when a post is saved.

 I'd love some input on the best way to approach this.
