Yes, this is a very longstanding and very irritating omission.  I don't
think I would be exagerating if I said this was the source of hundreds of
confused queries to the users mailing list and newsgroup.

I browsed through the default handler a while back trying to figure out
where this error was getting dropped, but I ran out of time and never got
back to it.  Someone who knows the code better could probably find it
