Indeed it does, and we did. Took us some time to persuade IBM to really 
check this, and some more time until we got an answer. The good news: they 
agree that the current behaviour is faulty, and they will change it. The 
not so good news: they can't predict when this fix will be available.

If you happen to have an account at IBM, you can read more about IV23320
