Issue with the PhotosetsGetInfo method?

Hi... I was trying to get the view count of a specific photoset and used the PhotosetsGetInfo method to get the details.  I noticed that for all my PhotoSets, the ViewCount property was always set to 0.  The method is fairly straight foward... and it always returns 0 for ViewCount.  Just to see if it was a problem with Flickr or not, I went to the Flickr API Explorer and used their flickr.photosets.getinfo method test page.  For all the photosets I tested against, the "count_views" attribute returned the proper view count.  Is this a bug for the PhotosetsGetInfo method?

Thanks, Scott

Yes, the current code is looking for "view_count". Flickr must of changed it at some point.
