[Seaside] Possible bug with <ul> generation?

I ran across this last night when perusing the generated code in my 
test-web-app I've been working on (debugging firefox css issues I had).. 
I have a block of code that populates an unordered list (for the Canvas 
API).. The unordered list will contain the contents of a shopping cart. 
  In this case if that cart is empty, I should effectively get (in my 
opinion) an empty list.. However, what I got was a single "</ul>" and 
nothing more.. I did not get the opening html tag (e.g. <ul>).. I'm 
guessing that the generation of that may be tied to the generation of a 
<li> item perhaps.. I've not bothered looking at the code yet.. In this 
case I fixed my problem and first check to see if my list is empty or 
not -- if it is then I skip that entire unordered list generation block 
thereby getting around the problem.

Anyway, this is by no means an issue for me and perhaps that's the way 
this is supposed to work, but I thought I'd see if anyone thought it 
might be a bug or not..

If you need some sample code, I could probably modify one of the 
standard Seaside tests pretty easily..

P.S. I'm using Seaside 2.6b1.129.0 (1/19/2007) if that helps..
