Misleading minus signs in Cucumber progress format

I have been recently using the Ruby test tool Cucumber and came across a little annoyance.  In the progress format output there were unexpected minus signs:

  $ cucumber --format progress features/codebreaker_submits_guess.feature
  14 scenarios (14 passed) 42 steps (42 passed)

Normally minus signs would be used to indicate skipped steps but here they seem to be displayed for each scenario outline step whether it is skipped or not.

A little Googling revealed that this is a known bug that has not yet been fixed because of the awkward internal design of Cucumber.
