Does the random choice of faction count twice in the achievements?

So if I get randomly assigned to the Zerg and win my match, would this count as a victory for both my random and Zerg achievements or just for random?

It does seem so.
I play random and got an achievement for 50 wins as random as well as the 10 wins as terran, zerg and protoss achievements.

I think that's server lag, and later you'll see those disapear – tzenes Aug 23 '10 at 15:09
I will check if they still exist when i'm at home later today but i think i still saw them yesterday. – dbemerlin Aug 23 '10 at 15:12
I checked to make sure. I currently have 22 wins as terran, 14 as zerg and the same for protoss. I never played anything else than Random, so it does definatly count twice. – dbemerlin Aug 23 '10 at 16:17
I woudn't have expected it different, winning random as zerg not counting as winning while playing zerg would be strange. – alexanderpas Aug 23 '10 at 18:30
Yes this works as it did in beta phase 2 as well. – RodYan Aug 23 '10 at 20:00

Yes it does count. I play random all the time now and a win as random counts towards the random achievement and the race you were given. This isn't lag or a bug.
