I think I'd just document it for now. I confess I'd never noticed the 
anomaly before so changing the behavior may not matter, but then again, 
it might. It's likely this has been around long before open source -- 
it's the same in Rev 5.5 which is the earliest version I have installed 
right now. There's no telling what scripts may depend on it.
