I already reproduced the behavior, but thanks for confirming.
I'm looking what the options are here... It looks like it was an explicit api decision for the status walker. (The single status result api does provide the switched flag!)
Just adding the flag as simple fix would make the status much slower on a single directory without recursion. Every db transaction counts in this performance critical scenario. And as this was implemented explicitly this way for wc-ng we really have an api change at hand.
It is not that it was mostly undefined behavior as before 1.7.
