Been like this for some time, actually. I was told it wasn't an error when I first noticed it, so I never reported a bug. It happened around the time when the cpu core was rewritten a few years back.
It may be original behavior, so I'm flagging as possible until it's completely discounted that it is not an emulation issue.
