I've downloaded the source of 1.7.4p5 and compiled that this morning. Alas,
I see the problem with it there as well.
It does sound like you're already aware of the problem, which is great news!
If you have specific fix in mind, wish to try a bit of code change I'm happy
to drop it into my build and test it here.

That should be fixed in 1.7.4p5.
