I'm not aware of a bug report on the matter. You should create one at 
http://d.puremagic.com/issues . Also, this list is not really intended to be 
posted to. It's for seeing the messages about changes to bug reports which the 
tracker sends. If you want to post questions, they should generally go to 
D.Learn or D.
