Counter in "Folders" window not updating

Hi everyone; I’m new here, so please forgive if this has been discussed ad nauseam, but I can’t find anything about it.

I keep my photos organised in two main folders: one for my old iPhoto library and one for anything newer (each folder is further sub-divided on dates).

My question is about the total picture count shown for the folders sometimes not updating after an import, as shown in the attached screen shot.

The total in the Catalog is 49018 - the sum of the two folders: 38130 and 10888. But the total for "OH HHD" is 49017. The most recent import was done to the "LR Library" folder. If I exit LR and restart, it gets updated to 49018.

Admittedly this is a very minor bug, but I wonder if others get the same. I’m running LR 6.9 (non-cloud), but the bug has been in several LR versions and across several OS changes. I have been using LR since v.4, but couldn't say when this first happened.
