Yes, this bug is on my radar but I don't plan to work on it for 0.9.26. I'd 
love to see it fixed but since it's not a regression (it wasn't working with 
0.9.25 neither) I prefer to not delay the release further. This release cycle 
has been very long and I think it's better to get it release as soon as 
possible. I should have mention that my focus is on regressions. Be sure 
though that it's high on my TODO list for 0.9.27.
