I knew I had remembered seeing it, just couldn't remember where it was. Finally had to go through each forum one by one... couldn't remember if it was in RM, skipped over it twice in [Archive]..... finally found it. Seems to be working fine on my end though.
It's beyond the scope of XenForo 1.0 to fix this, as we currently treat robots the same as other guests. However, a framework is in place to resolve this in the future, and we will do so for XenForo 1.1.
