Stock Split inflates net worth

I found a discussion on the topic, but it was locked and marked as fixed. It's still very much the case in my copy of Moneydance 2010:

Birkshire Hathaway B shares just split. Entering the split was easy in the history and fixed the calculations everywhere (from what I can tell) EXCEPT in the net worth report (and net worth bar at top of window). It's inflated thinking I had the number of shares I have now at the pre-split prices. Given that the split was 1 share into 50, it thinks my net worth has gone through the roof. On the date of the split, the net worth returns to normal - it's onlyt the historical data that's an issue.

Had it been fixed and the fix broke with the release of 2010 or was no fix ever really released?
