Lightroom 3+4: Tone Curve: Reset of regions and splits does not work as expected (and WB, too)

The context menu in the tone curve has the following entries:
- Reset Regions and Splits
- Reset Splits
- Reset Regions and Splits
- Reset Point Curve
- Reset All

The menu entries for resetting "Regions and Splits", "Splits", "Regions and Splits" and "All" do not work as expected. The same applies to double-clicking on the split sliders:

==> Expected behaviour: Regions and/or Splits are reset to the user-specified default develop settings, as it is the case for *every* other development setting when it is reset - and as it is the case for clicking on the reset button.

==> Actual behaviour: Regions and/or Splits are reset to Adobe defaults.

The same bug applies to the white balance's "WB" label: Alt-clicking or double-clicking on the label resets the white balance to Adobe default, i.e. to "as shot". Note that double-clicking on the sliders behaves *correctly*!

Note: For the tone curve, "Reset Point Curve" behaves correctly, and "Reset All" behaves half incorrectly (for regions and splits, as described above), and half correctly (for the point curve itself, which turns to user-specified default develop settings, the same as when alt/double-clicking on the word "point curve"). Furthermore, resetting the regions using alt/double-click on the word "Region" or double-click on the single sliders behaves correctly, contrary to the corresponding context menu entries.

LR 3.6 and 4.1 RC, both 64 Bit, Windows 7.

P.S. IMPORTANT: For those who want to reproduce: Because you have to twist your default development settings, it is probably advisable to create a test user account on your machine for that, so you don't destroy your default settings!!

... or download a raw file from a camera you don't own (e.g. a Leica M9).

Good point, that's a lot easier.
