Improvement for 3d contour!

If you enable machine shallow areas why does 3d contour ignore closed areas below the last step?

 

Here's an example. I have a stepdown of 0.5mm leaving a big closed area at the centre. When I enable machine shallow areas this area is ignored, only extra passes are added above the bottom step.

With shallow areas enabled even with a very fine step over same area is unmachined! Why isn't the shallow stepover applied to this area? Test file attached. I'm not looking for a workaround, I want this to just work better than it does now. Should have asked about this years ago!

Edit. There is something very odd going on with this. If I set the op up so the last step should be at 6.2mm (pocket is 6.25mm) it still puts the last step at 6mm! Goes in 0.5mm steps then the last step is 0.3mm.
