[OSM-dev] pbf2osm dropping <bounds>

    I created an extract with the Osmosis --bb, yielding an XML file 
that contains a <bound> element:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<osm version="0.6" generator="Osmosis 0.37">
   <bound box="48.90000,8.10000,49.10000,8.20000" origin="0.37"/>
   <node id="16477513" version="2" timestamp="2010-07-01T20:56:31Z" 
uid="118352" user="kamarc" changeset="5123681" lat="48.9536685" 
     <tag k="noexit" v="yes"/>

When I convert that to a .pbf file with Osmosis, or when I have Osmosis 
write the .osm.pbf directly, that pbf file contains the <bound> 
information, because converting it back with Osmosis still has the tag:

$ osmosis --rx test.osm --write-pbf test.osm.pbf
$ osmosis --read-pbf test.osm.pbf --wx new.osm
$ grep bound new.osm
   <bound box="48.90000,8.10000,49.10000,8.20000" origin="0.37"/>

However if I decode my file with pbf2osm, the <bound> is missing:

$ pbf2osm test.osm.pbf > new.osm
$ grep bound new.osm

Can someone fix that? (Or maybe it has already been fixed My pbf2osm is 
a few days old?)
