Possible bug with notmuch search & --limit --offset

I'm finding that when I use the --limit option with the output=files and
offset=N that the returned list of files is of variable length.
For instance when:
notmuch search --output=files --offset=6 --limit=2 steve
Which is two more results than required. If I choose different offset values
then the number of returned results will vary too.
If I issue:
notmuch search --offset=6 --limit=2 steve
It returns two results as expected, if I change the output type to anything
other than files (summary/threads/messages/tags) then the correctly limited
list is returned. So it only seems to happen with the files output type.
Both json and text format types exhibit the same behaviour.
Am I using this correctly ? I expect only two results to be returned but
being new to notmuch gives me doubts that what I am doing may be incorrect.
My apologies if the mailing list is not the place for this sort of report,
please direct me to a more appropriate place.
