miscounting of tags

In Ask Fedora, if I search for tags that has "#" in them, I get

But most of the tags are not current anymore and seems to be miscounted. If you click on any of them, you are likely getting no results. Because of this, these tags get shown in autocompletions and aggravates the issue. Any solutions?

In the development version tags starting with # are not allowed. There is also a management command fix_question_tags, which should solve the issue after the upgrade.

@Evgeny, I think the miscounting is because askbot is counting tags on deleted questions but not showing them when you search for them. Can you fix that as well? Thanks
