That's actualy known bug:

and the "attachments" has a testcase which is precisely what precisely what
Michael reports. In fact, the bug was files when he first reported the bug.

I'm hoping the issue description quite clearly explains the cause.

As for fix: well, I'm hoping it will be fixed in the next release. More
specifically, I hope to fix it tomorrow, provided I won't have some other
urgent things.
