Thanks for noticing the issue and submitting a test case!  Would you mind filing a bug using our bug tracking system?


You might have to create an account if you don't have one already.  You can submit test cases more easily through this interface, and track progress until the issue is resolved.  This is a particularly busy time of year for Trilinos developers, due to the upcoming Trilinos Users' Group meeting.  Thus, it could take us a while to address the issue.  Filing a bug report will help insure that we don't lose track of it.
