Eligius uses generate transactions to distribute pool coins.  I got a few, to an address I have assigned to "eligius" in my wallet, but they are showing up in the "" account.  Is this the expected/intended behavior?

        "account" : "",                    <---- HuhHuh
        "category" : "generate",
        "amount" : 1.27329935,
        "confirmations" : 205,
        "txid" : "58cc0cf1877e8153b6b53b32e6c63bc486ae19a6f275e3dfe200f5d15d49d9af",
        "time" : 1306806056

{ confirm with block explorer that this transaction went to 1B9hLQDUdpL29A2EMbCfx6fY2qpGKww9t }

$ ./bitcoin-0.3.21/bin/64/bitcoind getaccount 1B9hLQDUdpL29A2EMbCfx6fY2qpGKww9t
$ ./bitcoin-0.3.21/bin/64/bitcoind listaccounts
    "eligius" : 0.00000000,

The default client doesn't handle lots of things very well.  In addition to what you pointed out, "generate" transactions don't count as received, so if you do something like listreceivedbyaddress, it won't show up in there.  Also, accounts balances won't show up correctly (they don't take generated coins into account), so the only way to see your proper balance is with getinfo.
