Kind of yes, but it should be fixed. At least I can't say
if your code should work fine since I don't know what you have ;-)

I've fixed several encoding bugs before, but haven't merged all
of them since I had been waiting for the bug reporter about
the exact expected behavior. Maybe it's time to ignore it and
just port all of them.
