As far as I tested, this doesn't happen with the old code even if
a filter is attached. However, this happen with the new code
without a filter and I don't see this rather when a filter is
attached. So, I'm afraid it's new.

By the way, could you answer the Yoshifuji-san's question?
I think the code where we should fix depends on this.
