Yes http://code.google.com/p/pharo/issues/detail?id=3468
We could call this a "limitation" rather than a "bug" if you prefer
and declare it as an expectedFailure (conditionaly vm-wise).

I think that it is good to document limitations, so it was good to
introduce this test.
To me, an undocumented limitation is a bug.
