piano pedal brackets

Hello list!

I am typesetting some piano music and have run into a problem with the
bracket style of pedalSustainStyle.  If I have some simultaneous notes
in each clef, and the notes in the treble clef contain some
accidentals, the bracket sides for a pedal change are drawn as:


instead of


I could fix each pedal change with 
Staff.PianoPedalBracket \set #'shorten-pair etc etc.,
but I have a very chromatic piece and that would be _very_ aggravating.  Is
there any way to make this work correctly globally?

I'm using v. 2.0.0.  Thanks in advance. Here's a very simple example:

\include ""
\version "2.0.0"
upper = \notes {
    <c' e' a'>2 <b e' gs'>2 <c' e' a'>1

lower = \notes {
    a,2\sustainDown e2\sustainUp\sustainDown a1\sustainUp

\score {
    \context PianoStaff <<
    \context Staff = upper <<
        \time 4/4
        \clef treble >>
    \context Staff = lower <<
        \property Staff.pedalSustainStyle = #'bracket
        \clef bass
        \lower >>
