windows search index flags on checked out files - is a bug?

I look to confirm whether what i describe below is a bug.

Issue concerns windows search flags of files checked out on Windows 7.

Checked out folders have the flag "allow files in this folder to have
contents indexed in addition to file properties" enabled, but files inside
them have the flag "allow this file to have contents indexed in addition to
file properties" cleared. Therefore contents of the files is not indexed. I
expect it to be indexed in order to be able to use windows search (native
OS search) on local working copy (I use it to search documentation - Word,
text, excel files).

I first encoundered it with TortoiseSVN, but subsequently tested it doing a
fresh check-out using command-line svn (as suggested by otik in thread
linked below).
This behavior still exists.

Version 1.6.16 is not affected. This older version however had a nuisannce
that it also set the flags allowing for indexing svn metadata. It was
possible to workaround this issue by custom search rules.
