It's a bug (or just possibly by design), so no.  I've found and changed it
in the sources.  Unfortunately as 1.2.2 was released a couple of days ago,
this will not appear until the next release (which may be some time).  It
will be in the R-patched sources as from tomorrow, so if you really need
this you could compile that from the sources.
