I have created new taxonomy for posts using this example code from codex.wordpress.org (modified for post instead of book from the example)

$labels = array(
    'name'              => _x( 'Genres', 'taxonomy general name' ),
    'singular_name'     => _x( 'Genre', 'taxonomy singular name' ),
    'search_items'      => __( 'Search Genres' ),
    'all_items'         => __( 'All Genres' ),
    'parent_item'       => __( 'Parent Genre' ),
    'parent_item_colon' => __( 'Parent Genre:' ),
    'edit_item'         => __( 'Edit Genre' ),
    'update_item'       => __( 'Update Genre' ),
    'add_new_item'      => __( 'Add New Genre' ),
    'new_item_name'     => __( 'New Genre Name' ),
    'menu_name'         => __( 'Genre' ),

$args = array(
    'hierarchical'      => true,
    'labels'            => $labels,
    'show_ui'           => true,
    'show_admin_column' => true,
    'query_var'         => true,
    'rewrite'           => array( 'slug' => 'genre' ),

register_taxonomy( 'genre', array( 'post' ), $args );

After creating some term in this taxonomy and adding the term to the existing post, the posts counter for the term remains at 0 (in wp-admin/edit-tags.php?taxonomy=genre) and have_posts() returns false when I open the archive (example.org/genre/first-term/, $query_string is correctly formed to genre=first-term).

Creating new post with "first-term" checked will correctly increase the counter...

Any idea what could cause the problem?

must be caused by something in theme, because turning off the plugins didn't help and clean wp 3.6 installation works correctly... –  tomas Sep 2 '13 at 0:30
