[quagga-dev 16641] Static route via next-hop marked as inactive

I have a question regarding static routes.

I am using Quagga with the following setup:

My router has an interface with no IP address, but a static route to

It also has a route "to via"

In Quagga, the route towards is marked as "inactive", therefore 
it cannot be announced via BGP when import-check is enabled.

To announce it, I must either add an IP on the interface, or remove bgp 

Is this normal behaviour ?

I did not find any fix for this in the changelog, did I miss anything ?
