I have a patch to change it. I'll try to submit it to upstream.
Scratch build with my patch:
I tested it. It works.

Upstream is usually pretty responsive to these kinds of patches... if you could get them to apply that would be lovely.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
More information and reason for this action is here:

I can carry this patch in the Fedora package, but have you tried submitting it upstream?
If not, I can submit it there as well if you like...
I added a comment to an existing bugreport long ago:
But the patch is not accepted in the mainline.
Feel free to submit my patch another way.
I commented on that savannah bug, if that doesn't work I will try the mailing list.
The patch works fine here, BTW.
I've commited the patch in rawhide:
I don't think it's worth pushing out to stable releases for just that fix, but will push it out next time there is some reason to update stable releases.
Thanks for the patch and your patience.
