Ampersand not showing in Enumeration list

I have a custom attribute on a Work Item in RTC, defined as an Enumeration List type. On screen it is a Checkbox Enumeration List so I can select multiple values. Everything is working correctly, except... One of my values has an ampersand (Sales & Service). In my Process Configuration Source, the & is escaped correctly. On screen, it just doesn't show at all. (Sales  Service).

Is this is a bug or should I be coding something another way?

This looks like a bug. Eclipse is turning your ampersand into an accelerator. If you put in two ampersands it will display correctly wherever you are currently not seeing the ampersand. However any place you currently see the ampersand (in the web-client, and some other places in Eclipse UI) you will then see two.

Thanks. Do I need to enter the bug or is already noted?
