It has never intentionally done this, but there have been bugs in
the past that caused this type of behaviour. We generally try to
keep the trunk as free of serious bugs as possible, but they do
occur. AFAIK there are none at the moment as we're trying to stabilize
for a release. The only big commit coming is for multirec/inputgroups,
but it looks like that's not going to happen until the first week
of January.
