It is different symptoms from this bug 
( but it could be 
related in the code?

I recommend filing a bug report and I will be happy to add a note 
connecting the two bugs. The more issues found surrounding "the 
formattedWhatever" functions, the more likely we may see action at 
fixing them sooner rather than later.
