ModelFormSet initial data from initial parameter uses "extra" forms

It seems that when you feed initial data into a ModelFromSet using the initial parameter, it uses the "extra" forms that you define with the extra parameter in the modelformset_factory. For example, if you feed a list of two dictionaries (with the model data) into the initial parameter of a FormSet, but the formset_factory that the FormSet was created from has an extra parameter of 1 (or None), then only the model data from the first dictionary in the list will show up in the FormSet.
Since "initial" data doen't seem like they should be in the "extra" forms, I think this is a bug?
