Edit, Editors, and Branches

I seem to have encountered an oddity in CVS and I'm not sure whether this was an oversight on the part of CVS, or me :) ?

Let's assume that you have a file foo.c, with a branch of Branch1.

Now, say that a user has foo.c checked out in their workspace on Branch1 (cvs update -r Branch1 foo.c) and then edits it (cvs edit foo.c).

Have a second user get the mainline version of foo.c (cvs update -A foo.c), and then runs the Editors list on it (cvs editors foo.c).

Now does it make sense that the second user will see the 'edit' status of the first user even though the first user did the edit on the branch, and not on the mainline?
