Thank you for bringing this problem to our attention. I have logged it into our database and we will do our best to have it fixed for one of the upcoming releases. Unfortunately, I am unable to provide suitable workaround at this time. Please excuse us for the inconvenience.
As a small token of gratitude I have updated your Telerik points accordingly.
