I think it is the same for everyone, there were comments on here about it a month or so ago and I notice that several bugs have been raised on the github issues tracker relating to it. The developer has left them as closed/invalid (he/she has set the system to automatically close all issues logged but they re-open those that they accept are bugs) so presumably does not see it as an issue.
