tax_query incompatible with numberposts?

    Hi,

    I found a problem with get_posts() when I use numberposts AND tax_query in the same query. When I use either indepently I don’t have the problem.

    For example I need 6 random posts which have the given category or tag and excluding the current post.

    $widget_posts_count = 6;
    $post_id = 39660;
    $widget_post_type = 'any';
    $post_categories_list = array('8');
    $term_id_list = array('6462');
    
    $argsPosts = array(
    	'numberposts' => $widget_posts_count,
    	'exclude' => $post_id,
    	'orderby' => 'rand',
    	'post_type' => $widget_post_type,
    	'post_status' => 'publish',
    	'tax_query' => array(
    		'relation' => 'OR',
    		array(
    			'taxonomy' => 'category',
    			'field' => 'id',
    			'terms' => $post_categories_list
    		), array(
    			'taxonomy' => 'post_tag',
    			'field' => 'id',
    			'terms' => $term_id_list
    		)
    	)
    );
    $postToDisplay = get_posts($argsPosts);

    This is the returned query when I load the page (with both):

    SELECT wp_posts.* FROM wp_posts INNER JOIN wp_term_relationships ON (wp_posts.ID = wp_term_relationships.object_id) INNER JOIN wp_term_relationships AS tt1 ON (wp_posts.ID = tt1.object_id) WHERE 1=1 AND wp_posts.ID NOT IN (39660) AND ( wp_term_relationships.term_taxonomy_id IN (8) OR tt1.term_taxonomy_id IN (6462) ) AND wp_posts.post_type IN (‘post’, ‘page’, ‘attachment’) AND (wp_posts.post_status = ‘publish’) GROUP BY wp_posts.ID ORDER BY RAND() DESC;

    There’s no LIMIT here in returned query, but when I drop the tax_query, I have the LIMIT in the query :

    SELECT wp_posts.ID FROM wp_posts WHERE 1=1 AND wp_posts.ID NOT IN (39660) AND wp_posts.post_type IN (‘post’, ‘page’, ‘attachment’) AND (wp_posts.post_status = ‘publish’) ORDER BY RAND() DESC LIMIT 0, 6
