FreeBSD 9 installer, mountpoints limited to 15 characters?

I just ran into a surprise in the FreeBSD 9.2 installer.  Trying to create a separate filesystem at /usr/local/tinderbox I discovered that mount points in the installer are limited to 15 characters.  So all I can create is /usr/local/tind … this seems like a pretty bad UI bug.  Is this known?  Or intentional for some reason?
