Delete Item from Item Status Shows "0 volumes" to be Deleted

Bug Description

web client 3.0.3

When deleting the only item attached to a bib the popup displayed asks "Permanently delete selected copies and/or volumes from catalog?" which is fine.

However, the next line says: "Will delete 1 copies and 0 volumes"

Since this is the only copy on this volume it should indicate 1 volumes.

The setting in Library Settings Editor for Cataloging Delete volume with last copy is set to True for the consortium and the site does not have an overriding value.

Attaching screen shot shoing message in question.

I saw the same behaviour on Item Status and Holdings View when choosing to delete Copies.

The number of volumes is correctly reflected when choosing to delete Copies and Volumes on Holdings View.

It looks to me the library setting of deleting volume on deleting last copy is not observed.

The setting should be observed, and if it's not after allowing the action then that's a bug. But the confirmation screen is about what the user actually requested, which is the deletion of a copy. The deletion of the volume when the last copy is removed is something that happens after the copy has been deleted, and that was neither explicitly requested, nor has it occurred when the dialog is shown to the user. The dialog is reporting what was explicitly requested by the user so that the user can be sure they didn't mistakenly attempt to delete more (or less) than they intended. I don't think this dialog, by itself, is a bug.
