steps to reproduce:
1.Go To collections Home
2.Look for the collection-"Zaphod's set"
3.Notice the number of subscribers-it says zero
4.Add it to your favorites.refresh the page
5.Notice the number of subscribers
6.Remove the collection from your favorites
7.repeat step# 5.

expected result:
subscriber counter shows correct value based on how many people have added the collection to their favorites

actual result:
Even though I added "Zaphod's set" to my favorites and was subscribed to the collection,the counter remained at zero.Its more than 24 hrs since..and it hasnt updated yet.
-> jbalogh since you're working on the subscriber stuff right now

No, that doesn't update subscribers.  The counts should be updated immediately in Collection->subscribe/unsubscribe since they both call _updateSubscribersCount.  I chalked this up to caching when I was it on the collections pages.

All the code looks correct, so I'm guessing this is a caching issue.  It's always caching.  I was even seeing different subscriber counts for the same collection on listing and detail pages.
How do we confirm it's a caching issue?

Turning off caching locally and seeing the counts update as they should.

I assigned this to Jeff because Krupa said it had been 24 hours.  If that part is sorted out and this works without caching then this bug is fixed.  We're not setup to deal with instant cache updating at this point.

Especially with bug 496191's triggers in, the subscriber count on the backend should be correct.  Getting that value past all the caching and into krupa's eyes is a different matter.
