You're free to choose your annoyances. However, as the OP already found
out, scaling down is an important use case and when it doesn't work well
that's a bug. Reporting it generally gets better results than piling up
grudges. Your mileage may vary.

Obviously the OP knew how to switch back. I suppose he read the
documentation. BTW it's not obsolete, it's just broken for anything but
linear scaling (or none).
