I can confirm this bug, which I've recently stumbled into myself.

I can also confirm that Noam Postavsky's fix works.

In the interest of getting it merged as soon as possible, I'm sending
it here as a diff to be easier to apply.  I could send it as a patch
too if that will get it merged faster.  But the credit for fixing this
should fully go to Noam Postavsky.
