This is already known and marked as "partial" support in the software list. We do not require a bug report for these entries due to flagged items having known issues and regressions are not valid reports. We also have another bug for this game for the bugged audio and that is logged 06036 only because the NES driver itself is not flagged for imperfect sound.

Thanks for the effort, however.
