[wp-hackers] Bug or Expected behaviour? Taxonomy/Term parameters

If performing a custom WP_Query in 3.3.1, and selecting posts in a custom taxonomy by term ID - it returns posts assigned to the ID *AND* posts assigned to any child terms of this ID.
Surely if selecting by term ID it should return only posts assigned to that term, not children also.
If this is a feature rather than a bug - how do you select posts only assigned to the parent term, and not children?
$args = array(
'tax_query' => array(
'taxonomy' => 'example',
'field' => 'id',
'terms' => '5'
$query = new WP_Query( $args );
$query will contain posts assigned to taxonomy ID5, AND posts assigned to any children terms of this ID.
