Yup, this has also bothered me a bit.  I just had a look and decided
to back off of making any changes this close to the 0.8.2 release, but
since I'd like this not to be forgotten (more than it already has :),
there's now a trac ticket about it:


Hopefully either me or someone else will get a chance to fix it soon,
before 0.8.3 when we get the Leopard work out.
