position of staccato dots if above stems

When I have 2 or more voices on a staff, it can occur that staccato dots are 
placed at the stem-side of the note instead of close to the note head.

Shouldn't in this case  the dots be placed centered above the stems rather 
than the note head? Because I have some heavily sloped 8-note beams, where 
the staccato dots are placed almost inside the beam.

If the staccato dots would be placed inline with the stems, they would not run 
into the beam. (See picture, the output is untweaked default output of 
version 2.11.6). If the placing is intended then it is maybe a little bug 
that the beams are note taken into account?

kind regards, and thanks for this wonderful program,
