this one worries me... we were supposed to add similar plumbing
for this as for stat, etc. for Navigator and header. and there's 
even a bug for it but it's gotten missed somehow.  the confusion 
over these things has come up several times over a decade, you'll see
that I went through the same WTF period (again) if you read bug 2426.
