The odds of something like this getting fixed to your satisfication (not to
mention at all <wink>) greatly increase if you submit a patch.  Looks to me
like what you want to do is both correct and harmless, but I'm (speaking as
a generic Python developer) not going to be able to make time to test it in
the context you're concerned about.  OTOH, if there were a patch that you
knew worked for *you*, cool, I could apply it and just make sure it didn't
break anything for me (speaking as a etc).
