It's the side-effect of some other features in the system.  If you
search on -hackers archives you'll find several attempts to find  a
solution to this little problem; all of them have failed so far,
AFAIK.  There was talk of making the int4-to-int8 case behave more
reasonably in 7.4, but I don't know whether it's been done.
