   Yup, this was a bug as well. I've added a separate test for this and
commited a patch fixing the problem. The patch clears the same cached
values as the previous one whenever a new derived type is registered.

   Changeset link:

   I believe the same bug can be fixed more efficiently by not clearing
all the cached values but by simply adding the newly registered derived
target type to whichever source target type cache already contains its
base target type.

   Hope this helps.
