I'm sorry this one slipped through the cracks with the recent 0.10
work. It was a small fix but I didn't see it and there was no bug
report assigned to the 0.10 milestone with this information to alert
me.  When you reported it originally I was simply too swamped and
unresponsive, and it slipped.

I've now made a bug for it so this doesn't happen again:


As it says there, it's possible we may not need it for 0.11, but we'll
see.  In any case, if we do put out an 0.10.1 bugfix release later,
this should go in there.
