Child Categories error out as Duplicates

Great work, love WordPress but this recent issue has been a thorn. I really hope that we can sort it out.
After upgrading to Wordpress 2.5 I am getting this error when trying to add a new child category when the name of a that category exists within a different parent.
For example, if I have:
and then I try to add a new category called Summer with a different parent like:
Wordpress is throwing an error:
"The category you are trying to create already exists."
From forum mod -> Duplicate Category (and Tag) names are no longer allowed.
I think this is a big mistake and will force at least two clients of mine to continue to use pre 2.5 versions or rather I will have to attempt to fix it myself.
From my perspective categories with different parents or levels should be able to have the same literal name. CatA->Apple, CatB->Apple are not the same thing and should be allowed.
Thanks in advance.
