This is an interesting issue between master and stable.

Browsing through the history, I see master's commit
79657fd3ec264ecd533a62d349c2cf1a2be2df14, which I assume fixes this bug,
but this fix is not in the last stable version, released just some days

IMO the user should be informed about this limitation in stable, even if
it's going to go away.
