Sorry for the delay in replying. Someone else just reported this  
error today, and I was able to reproduce it as well. I've made a  
ticket and added you to the Cc list so you're informed when the  
ticket is updated. If you don't want that you can edit the ticket and  
remove your address from the Cc list.
