Default Root explorer folder overwrite bug?

In Root Explorer, if I try to paste a folder in a situation where it should overwrite the target folder, it is instead placed inside it. For example:

1) create /sdcard/test/
2) copy the new folder
3) paste into /sdcard/

The result should be that one test folder overwrites the other, with no structure change. However, you end up instead with /sdcard/test/test/
If I instead delete "test" before step 3, the pasted test ends up where it should (inside /sdcard/, rather than inside /sdcard/test/). The moral seems to be if you know you are going to overwrite a folder, you must manually delete it first (which makes backup restoration with multiple indentured over-writes problematic).

Try for yourself and see. Am I missing something? Is this a known issue?
