Yes, this was a bug. I checked in a fix in r44694, which will be scheduled to be backported to the 1.8 branch. For now, if you are running Windows, you can test with any automated build version 44694 or later. If the installer isn't there yet, wait a while until the buildbots have finished creating them.

It was already backported to 1.8.4. Although it's missing from the Past 1.8 Releases wikipage, it's in the subversion log r45127.

Checkout the PPA for Thomas Dreibholz for instance.
