I don't know if its a bug as much as it is something that was never 
really discussed.  I think a lot of us that have been working with 
custom post types for a while now, knew that this was the case, but have 
never discussed if the is_home() functionality should change or if an 
alternate function should be made as a work around.  Personally, I have 
been testing against is_home() and get_query_var('post_type').
