see the counter if the counter is turned on. IMHO this should be

The stat counter display used to be restricted both by the
statistics_display_counter global setting, and the current users access

of the module, I doubt it was not intended to only print out the view
number to those with proper access rights. This simple patch adds the
proper check.

Shouldn't that be user_access('access statistics') instead of
array('access statistics')?  (Easy enough to fix.)

Note that 'access statistics' allows access to the administration pages
so I'm not sure this patch is a good idea.    

Food for thought/dicussion.
