group privacy settings are conflicting with individual items' privacy settings

i have a group here which is closed and which has a visibility setting of 'signed in users only'. i have added a video to the group and the video has a privacy level of 'public'. when i log out from the site and visit the url of the video, i can view the video fine - since the video is set to be public. however, i am now also viewing the group's name, icon and navigation menu in the owner block for the group. when i click on one of the navigation menu links or attempt to view the group's main page, i see a 'missing page' error..

this is a poor experience. i am using group_tools and elgg 1.8 (latest). has this been improved in elgg 1.9+ ?
should i create a ticket?
